Beautiful Black And White Zebra Bird Is Unlike Anything You Ηave Ever Seen

This unique bird, with its black and white zebra like stripes is known as the black-and-white warbler (Mniotilta varia) and is a native of the Americas. Some have even suggested the unique-looking avian looks just like a flying ‘humbug’ candy.


Found in north and north-east North America it migrates down the continent to warmer climes such as Florida, with some known to migrate as far south as Peru, Mexico and the West Indies.


The tiny birds, only around 13cm in length are known for their unique calls. While males are stronger in colour females have stripes that are somewhat more subdued. The stripes themselves do not develop until fully matured, with the chicks and younger birds having grey spots instead of stripes.


Usually found in woodland they use the vast array of trees and shrubs to search for small grubs and small pieces of vegetation. Truly omnivorous they are particularly partial to eating spiders and other insects.


The adults breed in the summer months and the chicks are cared for mostly by the female, unlike many other species of birds which care for their chicks as a team, or species where the female has sole responsibility, these birds operate as a team with the female caring for the chicks and the male delivering food for the female. She will lay up to half-a-dozen small eggs in a nest built from everything from pinecones to moss, and after just 12 or so days of incubation the babies will be born. After another 10 or so days the chicks will leave the nest.


Unfortunately, this beautiful little bird is regarded as under threat due to climate change and habitat destruction. You can see the black-and-white warbler in all its glory in the video below:
