More about the Townsend’s Warbler

While a flock of Townsends is often referred to as a ‘bouquet’, they are also called a ‘confusion’, and as they travel in flocks of 20 you can certainly see why if you try to keep your eye on of the bouncy and beautiful little birds. You can find them in the United States Pacific coast, as well as in Central America and Mexico.

Interestingly enough, when they are in Mexico their diet becomes very specialized, as they seem to favor local scale insects which produce a sweet and sugary secretion called ‘honeydew’ that they can’t seem to get enough of!
