Unlike many other birds, both male and female pink-headed warblers look very similar. Juveniles are brown with paler underparts.

These pink-headed warblers are famous in the southwestern highlands of Guatemala where they are considered a spritely gem.

This beautiful pink bird lives in humid and semi-humid pine-oak and evergreen forest in altitudes from 5,900-11,500 ft above sea level.

Pink-headed warblers’ main diets are insects and other invertebrates.

When the breeding season comes, female birds will build nests on the ground on their own. This nest is made from pine needles and moss. They then lay 2-4 eggs in and incubate them for 16 days.

The females continue to feed the hatchlings for about 10-12 days until fully-fledged.

Over the past few years, the population of this warbler has decreased due to the loss of the cloud forest. Currently, it’s listed as endangered in Mexico.
