Ovenbirds

One of the warblers that is an annual spring migrant on the Chico, Ovenbirds are necessarily dull in plumage because they nest on the forest floor building an oven-shaped nest, a character used for naming this species. They are best know for their loud songs, singing “teacher teacher teacher” for long periods. The orange crown stripe is sometimes visible and the breast spotting is reminiscent of thrushes. Its scientific name, Seiurus aurocapillus comes from Greek words meaning to shake its tail, a characteristic to look for as they walk on the ground.
