General Notes

The Nashville Warbler is an abundant summer resident in Timiskaming, and is one of our commonest warblers, easily ranking within the top five. It arrives with the early spring warblers such as the Yellow-rumped and Black and White Warblers.  Although second growth mixed woods seem to be preferred, it will also use a variety of other habitats.  Nests are built on the ground, and generally well concealed by a fern or shrub.
