Prothonotary Warblers

Record #:
The Prothonotary Warbler, a brilliantly colored orange-yellow bird with a distinctive song, summers among Eastern North Carolina's coastal woodlands, swamps, and rivers. It winters in Central and South America. Warblers nest in cavities in small trees, usually a few feet from water in streams, in swamps and wet woodlands. This has a dangerous side, though, because flooding can cause substantial nest failure each year.
