Length: 5 in. (13 cm)
Dull and easily over looked, this warbler commonly winters in suburban areas with vegetation and flowers and in riparian areas. During the summer it breeds in dense shrubs of alder and willow. The cup-like nest is made of grass and usually placed on the ground or low in a bush or dense vegetation. Its food includes insects, small fruit and nectar from flowers and occasionally hummingbird feeders. The four-digit banding code is OCWA.
