Its name may conjure images of a Norman Rockwell thanksgiving feast, but the ovenbird is actually named for how it builds its domed nest, reminiscent of a Dutch oven. A tiny bird, brown in color and spending most of its time on the floor of thick forest, it is a bird more often heard then seen with its familiar song “teacher…teacher…teacher.”
Generally comfortable eating insects found in their woodland home, you might have some luck attracting these birds with raisins and hemp seed.
