Length: 6 in. (14 cm)
A spectacular species found in the pine and aspen forests of western mountains, this warbler gleans and snatches insects from leaves at low to mid levels in the forest. Its nest is a shallow cup placed low in a bush or on the ground, especially under bank overhangs. The four-digit banding code is RFWA.
