Black-and-white Warbler: view of nest in surrounding habitat, photo, Jefferson National Forest, Virginia, 2010
The Black-and-white Warbler nest is shown in this photo together with the immediate surrounding habitat in which it has been hidden. The female is at the edge of the nest ready to depart in search of additional nesting material.  The Black-and-white Warbler nests on the ground and this nest was well-concealed both by surrounding vegetation and its integration into the background of leaf litter. The male did not participate in nest building but periodically brought the female food.
El nido de la Reinita Trepadora se ve con el habitat que lo rodea donde se ha ubicado para esconderse. La hembra está al margen del nido lista para salir en busca de más material. La Reinita Trepadora hace su nido en el suelo y este nido estaba bien escondido tanto por la vegetación circundante como por la manera en que estaba ubicado entre las hojas secas. El macho no participaba en hacer el nido. Sin embargo, a intérvalos llevaba comida para la hembra.
