Brief SummaryRead full entry
BiologyThe Tahiti reed-warbler is a shy, skulking bird, which is more likely to be heard than seen (4). It is constantly on the move, searching for food, mainly in the forest canopy, where it feeds primarily on insects, but also on lizards, nectar and small seeds (3). It occasionally also consumes small fish and crayfish (2). The reed-warbler builds elaborate cup-shaped nests from plant materials such as grass and moss.
