Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Adult males are black with bright orange wings, tail, and sides. Much smaller and more active than other black-and-orange birds like orioles. Females and immature males have gray head, olive back, and yellow patches instead of orange. This warbler forages in trees and bushes, habitually flicking its tail and wings to scare up insects. Breeds in deciduous forests (mature and secondary growth). Winters in Central and South America.
