Hikers might see them pop up occasionally from dense shrubs. Females build a loose cup nest on mossy stumps or upturned trees. By August most are done nesting and are already on their way back to their wintering grounds in South America.
Listen for the song of this bird, a loud chip chewy sweet dichetty and low chup's calls.
