Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Secretive warbler that lacks vibrant colors, but compensates with its enormous voice. Olive-brown above with black streaks on white breast and bold white eyering. Orange crown bordered by black on either side. Forages for insects by walking along branches and on the ground. Breeds primarily in areas with extensive forest. Listen for its loud song that builds in volume: "tea-cher, TEA-cher, TEA-CHER!" Possible to confuse with thrushes, but smaller, and walks instead of hops. Winters in Central America.
