The Pine Warbler is the only warbler that eats seeds regularly. They like millet, cracked corn, sunflower seed, peanuts, and suet from elevated feeders in winter. They may also eat fruits from bushes and vines, like bayberry, flowering dogwood, grape, sumac, persimmon, and Virginia creeper.
They are partial migrants. Pine Warblers from the northern U.S. and Canada migrate to wintering grounds in the southeastern U.S. but the ones that breed in the Southeast stay there year-round.
We might see Pine Warblers in mid-Michigan from April to May on their way to their breeding grounds in the upper part of Michigan and Canada.
