This fairly large warbler is blue-gray above, yellow below, and heavily streaked with black on its back and sides. Its white eye-ring does not completely circle the eye and its wingbars are faint. The Kirtland's warbler is a loud and persistent singer on its breeding territory, though studies have shown that males sing during spring migration, from the Carolinas, northward. The song, which sounds like the chip-chip-che-way-o, is described as clear and not buzzy as many other warbler songs. The Kirtland's warbler has a habit of wagging or bobbing its tail.

These warblers forage on the ground and low in trees, where they glean or flycatch small insects such as sawflies, grasshoppers, and moths. Ripe fruits are also eaten, especially on the wintering grounds. Nestlings are fed a mix of insects and soft fruits.

Nesting Behavior:

Kirtland's warblers form pairs about a week after arriving on the breeding grounds in mid-May. By the last week of May, weather permitting, egg laying begins. Eggs hatch in mid-...
