The Black and White Warbler, is somewhat unusual for a Warbler, due to its' 
habit of ascending tree trunks in search of prey, much like a Nuthatch. A distinct colour pattern, is also a characteristic as well. Some winter as far south as Northern South America.

Nice write up and an excellent illustration of its behavior. One of the harder to photograph Warblers.

Such a distinctive black and white colouring on this little beauty, and it does think its a nuthatch/tree creeper, Paul! A lovely image.
