Garden warblers are fairly nondescript as warblers go, similar to many other warbler species. But what they lack in appearance is more than made up for in their song - a collection of sweet, musical notes that's remarkably similar to that of a blackcap. It's so similar, in fact, that the two species respect the other's territorial boundaries. Garden warblers breed in the woodlands and hedgerows of Europe and Asia. To prepare for the migratory journey to Africa for the winter, garden warblers eat as many berries as they can, often covering themselves in fruit juice.
