Prothonotary Warbler Bringing Food Home

Sitting just off the trail this Prothonotary Warbler was perched, but not singing, which is a common behavior. I didn’t notice at first that his beak was stuffed with lunch.

Not for himself, but he was taking this meal to his nest.

He quickly stuck his head in…

then flew off for another serving.

I didn’t hear any chicks so suspect he was feeding his brooding mate.

  1. Great shots of this behavior, Ellen! What a find to see this warbler in the first place . . . Extra special to see him with food and to capture him taking it home for a delivery! Wow.

    1. Thank you! Yes, I was pretty pleased just to see him on the open branch. This was a case of sheer luck, just passing by as the bird was reaching his nest.
