Birds of Kentucky: Kentucky Warbler

Kentucky Warbler By Mark Trabue

Wikipedia has a rather unflattering take on the Kentucky Warbler: The Kentucky warbler (Geothlypis formosa) is a small species of New World warbler. It is a sluggish and heavy warbler with a short tail, preferring to spend most of its time on or near the ground, except when singing.

Luckily, according to an article in the State Journal, the bird was named for Kentucky because that's where it was discovered, not how energetic it is.
