Hi, I'm Andrew and I’m just a simple 19 year old guy and zoology student that posts random factoids about obscure animals and general animal science/zoology/biology stuff so if you like animals this is the place for you, if you only like cute animals this is not the place for you… Also I can ID any animals you might need identified (just submit them to me).

Disclamer: none of the pictures are mine unless stated

Pink-headed Warbler (Cardellina versicolor)
…a small species of New-World Warbler (Parulidae) that is endemic to the highlands of central and eastern Chiapas in Mexico, to western Guatemala. In this range they commonly occupy humid/semi-humid evergreen and oak forests along with pine forests as well. Like other New World warblers pink-headed warblers are insectivores, foraging for insects and other small invertebrates from vegetation.
Currently Cardellina versicolor numbers are declining, due to habitat fragmentation and lost. This has caused it to be listed as Vulnerable.
