The Ovenbird, with its orange and brown head stripes, bold eye ring, and spotted breast, is much more often heard than seen. Beginning in early spring and continuing through summer, I will hear up to a half dozen of them calling from different parts of our woods with their “Teacher, Teacher, Teacher” call. They are very secretive, however, and stay hidden in the brush. They are 6 inches long and actually in the warbler family. This one was photographed in Lake County, Minnesota.
