Magnolia Warbler

Setophaga magnolia

When they leave their winter homes in southern Mexico and Central America, most Magnolia Warblers pass through southern Texas on their way to Canada, the Great Lakes and New England to raise the next generation. They forage mostly in the upper canopy looking for caterpillars when they can find them and any bug, spider or arthropod when they can’t. The lowest ten feet in fir trees provide favorite locations to built their small nests (under 4″ in diameter).
