The Kentucky Warbler breeds in the southeast U.S. Winters are spent in Central America and northern South America. They are considered a common bird in their range. Since I live on the west coast, I was quite excited to see them in Texas. They build their nests on the ground under a shrub or in a patch of vegetation. They eat insects and their larva and small spiders.
