Orange-crowned Warbler


Orange-crowned Warbler

Orange-crowned Warblers are small, active song birds characterized by their rapid flitting movement through foliage and their memorable songs in springtime. The sprightly, diminutive Orange-crowned Warbler is a subdued yellow with the added surprise of orange feathers occasionally flashed on its crown when surprised or agitated. While many more strikingly colored warblers briefly migrate through Orange County on their way to northern spring breeding grounds or when returning south for warmer overwintering destinations, many Orange-crowned Warblers are local breeders, building their nests here to raise their young in our own tree-filled parks and backyards. Listen for the distinctive high-pitched staccato trill of the male this spring as he attracts a potential mate.
