Kentucky Warbler
(Oporornis formosus)

A characteristic breeding bird of the rich deciduous forests of southeastern United States, the Kentucky Warbler winters in Mexico, Central America, and northern South America. Although a rather handsome-looking bird, it is secretive and more often heard than seen.

The Kentucky Warbler is a shy, ground-dwelling bird with bright yellow underparts, olive upperparts, and, its most distinctive feature, a black mask and yellow "goggles." Adult females are similar, but lack the male's dark head markings. Plumages are similar year-round. The Kentucky Warbler's loud repeated two-syllable song resonates in the bottomland forests where it is more often heard than seen.
