Orange-crowned Warbler
Vermivora celata

Warblers and Tanagers
Wood-Warbler Family (Parulidae)

Size: Length: 11.5-14 cm

Description: This olive-green warbler is a common summer visitor to the Rockies as well as to the neighbouring foothills.. Its body is solidly covered with olive-green feathers. There is a faint eye-ring and eye stripe. On males, a partially hidden crown of orange is occasionally visible. Females lack the orange, and are generally a little drabber than males. The underside is gray-yellow and the undertail coverts have a yellow tint. These woodland warblers nest on the ground, occasionally in a low shrub. They are most commonly found in alder and willow thickets in the mountains, where the thick brush supports a variety of insects. The song is unremarkable, a series of monotonous trills, dropping in pitch once in the middle, and a second time near the end of the song.
