Black-and-white Warbler female using body to arrange material in the nest, photo, Jefferson National Forest, Virginia, 2010
This female Black-and-white Warbler is using her body to arrange material in the nest she is building on the ground.  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.
La hembra de la Reinita Trepadora se está utilizando el cuerpo para arreglar material del nido que está construyendo. 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.
