Ovenbird


Ovenbird

This photo came from the American Bird Conservancy website.  I get their emails daily and their birds are so interesting and beautiful.  Here is some background on the bird:
 
The Ovenbird gets its name from its unique nest, which looks like a domed oven.  Ovenbirds spend much of their time walking (never hopping) along the forest floor, where they forage through the leaf litter for insects, spiders, snails, worms, and even small lizards. Since they nest on the ground, habitat fragmentation makes them especially vulnerable to brood parasites such as Brown-headed Cowbirds, and nest predators such as raccoons, chipmunks, squirrels, and snakes.
