Blackburnian Warbler, Tawas State Park, Tawas MI

The Blackburnian Warbler (Setophaga fusca) is the only warbler that has an orange throat. They are usually only seen during the warbler migration in the spring and fall, as they tend to stay high up in deciduous trees feeding on insects, spiders, caterpillars, butterflies, and ants among other insects. 

The biggest threat to these birds is the loss of mature coniferous woodlands, boreal forests, and mixed spruce and hemlock, as these are their preferred breeding ground
