Weekend Bird

Recommended Posts

Please help with a bird I saw this weekend in Spencer County KY.

My first impression was an Ovenbird, but I didn't get a great look.  It was at least 20 or 30 feet up in the tree.  I'm not sure if that is common for an Ovenbird.

Ovenbird seems correct, maybe a juvenile due to the dull streaking. As to why it’s up in the tree, I’m not sure.

Yeah, Ovenbirds are usually found low in bushes or walking on the ground, but I've seen them in tall trees before. Being found in the understory is a matter of preference rather than an inability.
