V is for Vitelline Warbler

Vitelline warblers live only on the Caymen Islands, in woodland and scrub.

Exceptionally beautiful, they look like little splinters of sun singing in the trees, with a characteristic tsu tsu tsu tsu tsooooo sound.

They eat insects they find in the leaves and stems, often foraging at low height.

Not a lot is known for sure about this little bird as it has not been studied; so its precise diet, beyond that of insects, is unknown.

It lives in a small area, on islands where land development is proposed, and is classified as Near Threatened.
