The Pine Warbler, Dendroica
pinus, is a small songbird of the New World
These birds have a white belly,
white wing bars, dark legs and a thin, relatively
long pointed bill; they have a yellowish line
over the eye. Adult males have olive upperparts
and a bright yellow throat and breast; in females
and immatures, the upperparts are olive-brown
and the throat and breast are paler.
Their breeding habitat is open
pine woods in eastern North America. The nest
is a deep open cup placed near the end of a
tree branch, usually a pine.
These birds are permanent residents
in southern Florida. Other birds migrate to
northeastern Mexico and islands in the Caribbean.
They forage slowly on tree trunks
and branches, poking their bill into pine cones,
also searching for food on the ground. These
birds mainly eat insects, seeds and berries.
The song of this bird is a musical
trill. The call is a slurred chip.
