    Prothonotary Warbler- Protonotaria citrea
    Prothonotary Warbler- Protonotaria citrea, Order PASSERIFORMES - Family PARULIDAE. This male is scoping out the nest area on top of the rotting tree trunk. These are incredibly beautiful birds. It was a very rainy Sunday morning. But I was excited to get into the field to look for warblers in Heuston Woods. Despite the rainshowers, I was able to identify three species of warblers in the transitional forest near Sugar Camp in Heuston Woods State Park.

    (Photo: April 25, 2004, Canon 10D, EF 100-400mm f/4.5 5.6 L IS USM, Better Beamer Flash Extender)

    " A brilliant yellow-orange bird of southeastern wooded swamps, the Prothonotary Warbler is a striking sight. The Prothonotary Warbler is one of only two warbler species that breed in holes. (Lucy's Warbler is the other. Breeds in wooded areas near water, especially flooded bottomland hardwood forests, cypress swamps, and along large lakes and rivers. Winters in mangrove swamps and coastal tropical forests.)"
