Although named after Nashville, Tennessee, the Nashville Warbler (Leiothlypis ruficapilla) only visits that area during migration. It was first observed there in 1811 by Alexander Wilson, who named the species. This small warbler is common in both the east and the west, often seen foraging in thickets and young trees, flicking its short tail frequently as it seeks insects among the foliage. While these birds do not frequently visit feeders, they may be tempted by jelly, oranges, suet, and peanut butter, as well as larger nectar feeders with convenient perches.
