[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From my trip to USA this spring.

A brilliant yellow-orange bird of southeastern wooded swamps, the Prothonotary Warbler is a striking sight.

•The Prothonotary Warbler is one of only two warbler species that nest in cavities. (Lucy's Warbler is the other.)
•Go here to take a look at what goes on inside a Prothonotary Warbler nest, through the help of a Nest Box Cam provided by The Birdhouse Network at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
•The name "Prothonotary" refers to clerks in the Roman Catholic church, whose robes were bright yellow.
