Orange-crowned Warbler

For a bird with such a colorful name the orange-crowned warbler is rather plain. They do have an orange patch of feathers on the top of their head but it is usually not visible.These birds breed in Canada, Alaska and parts of the western United States. Their numbers in the eastern portions of North America are in decline. They winter in the southern US, Mexico and Central America.
