Eating Worms

Tuesday, May 20, 2008
Did you ever wonder if this particular species of wood warbler sings that sad-sack nursery rhyme to itself?

Nobody likes me
Everybody hates me
think I'll go eat worms

I took this picture on Saturday morning while leading the Hemlock Gorge Overlook field trip at the Ohio Ornithological Society convention at Mohican State Park. He was by far the most cooperative member of his species I'd ever encountered. And he wasn't feeling sorry for himself in the least.

Wow, great photo! I've only ever heard them, never seen them.

DGuz: They often perch higher than you think to sing, when on territory.
