Guess what we saw using this clump of old tent caterpillar web...go ahead, guess.
Okay, I'll give you some background information:
-The tent caterpillars used this last year, so the webbing is old.
-The web is in a sourwood tree and the sourwood tree is on a piece of high ground adjacent to the swamp.
-The clump of web is about 12 feet off the ground.
-The critter using the web usually uses Spanish moss.
So what did we see?: FloridaCracker came the closest with his guess of a prothonotary warbler. It was indeed a warbler, a Northern Parula Warbler to be exact. I've seen them nest in Spanish moss, but I've never seen one use an old tent caterpillar web. Guess I'll have to pay closer attention from now on...
