Grey-and-gold Warbler

One nest, in the Jorupe Reserve of southwest Ecuador, contained two well-feathered nestlings when discovered by the authors. The adults were observed to feed the nestlings one after the other, in quick succession. The nest, a domed cup with a side entrance, was built into the side of a steep ravine and tucked under a liana such that the slope of the hill and the top of the nest were even. The young, when they fledged from the nest, flew successfully from the rim of the cup and out of view.

The Grey-and-gold Warbler is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The Grey-and-gold Warbler (Basileuterus fraseri) is a species of bird in the Parulidae family. It is found in Ecuador and Peru. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests and subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests. Aspects of the Grey-and-gold Warbler's breeding biology were recently described by Miller et al. (2007), based on a sample of two nests. More
