Prothonotary Warbler Singing

Prothonotary Warblers get their name from the protonotarii, Roman Catholic officials that wore golden robes. The breeding habitats of these small songbirds include wooded swamps and other bottomland forests. While they typically nest in low cavities, they may also use gourds, bird boxes and cypress knees. Prothonotary Warblers primarily eat insects, but they may also feed on fruit, nectars and seeds.
