These are a rare bird to see up close primarily due to their loss of habitat and the Brown-headed Cowbird, which often destroys the eggs in their nests and replaces them with their own. Finding them can be difficult because they spend much of their time in heavily foliaged tress or grass lands that are swampy or recently flooded. They are very small birds measuring only 4 inches in length. They weigh about 11 grams.
