Ovenbird

(Seiurus aurocapilla)



Status: Migrant. Last recorded on site in 2021

The Patuxent web-site provides more general information about this species.
At this time of year, this species is rare on site.

Occurs as a migrant in moist, wooded areas of the lab. In 1988, territorial males remained in the ring savanna and in the "big woods" through the first week of June but were not seen or heard for the rest of the summer. As habitat seems suitable, this species may nest on site in future years.
