[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Distinctive in both plumage and behavior, the Black-and-white Warbler forages for insects while creeping along the trunks and branches of trees. Common in summer throughout the eastern United States and Canada, it has an unusually extensive winter range that extends from Florida to Venezuela and Colombia.
Adult Description
•Small warbler.
•Black-and-white striped plumage.
•Striped crown.
Male Description
Strongly contrasting black-and-white stripes on head and upperparts. Two white wingbars. White eyestripe. Eyering white. Lores and ear patch black. Throat black. Underparts white with bold black streaks.
•The Black-and-white Warbler has an unusually long hind toe and claw on each foot. This adaptation allows it to move securely on the surface of tree bark.
•Unusually aggressive for a warbler, the Black-and-white Warbler sometimes attacks and fights Red-breasted Nuthatch, Black-capped Chickadee, Tennessee Warbler, and other species.
