Behavior

Behavior

White-lored Warbler most commonly is observed either solitary or in groups of two to three individuals, actively foraging for insects in the understory between ground level and 2 m. Occasionally they forage in the midstory or even the canopy, especially when they join mixed species flocks led by Slate-throated Redstarts (Myioborus miniatus).

Territoriality

White-lored Warblers are territorial throughout the year, as confirmed by resightings of color-banded individuals in the same areas (L. Sanchez, personal communication). More study is needed, however, to learn about the dimensions and characteristics of these territories.

Sexual Behavior

Unknown; presumably White-lored Warbler is at least socially monogamous.

Predation

Unknown.
