Species: D. castanea

This species is closely related to Blackpoll Warbler, but this species has a more southerly breeding range and a more northerly wintering area. On our study sites we had both bay-breasted and blackpole warbler breeding in the same habitat. Their breeding habitats are coniferous woodlands. Bay-breasted Warblers nest in conifer, laying 3-5 eggs in a cup-shaped nest. More eggs are laid in Spruce Budworm years.

These birds feed on insects, and the numbers of these birds vary with the abundance of the Spruce Budworm. These birds will also feed on berries and nectar in wintertime. From wikipedia
