The Black & White Warbler makes an early come back. I have a friend that affectionately calls this bird the “Zebra Bird”, I like that!

They were previously called a Black and White Creeper because of their behavior. They act more like a Nuthatch or a Brown Creeper in the way that they forage. They will creep along branches sometimes hanging upside down as they look for insects and their larvae.
