This Nashville Warbler was searching through cherry blossoms to find insects. They also feed on leafhoppers, weevils and spiders.
In 1811, Alexander Wilson discovered this species while it was passing through Nashville and named it the Nashville Warbler. He saw this species three times during his life. During the same time period, other well-known birders also chanced upon seeing the bird only a few times. Then to everyone's surprise, by 1879, more and more sightings of Nashville Warblers started being reported. As it turned out, because more and more Americans were moving west, clearing the forests for cultivation, and abandoning the land, it created the perfect habitat for Nashville Warblers - second-growth forests and spruce bogs.
