Black-and-White Warblers in Texas

Mniotilta varia

Superficially similar to Blackpoll and Black-Throated Gray Warblers, the Black-and-White Warbler’s foraging behavior is more like that of a nuthatch. While most warblers are seen foraging among the leaves and flowers in the tree canopies, this bird makes its living looking for invertebrate prey hidden in the folds of tree bark.
