Very lovely bird to have such a gobswap of a name. I actually have seen one on a birding trip in Hagerman Wildlife Refuge.
* The Prothonotary Warbler is one of only two warbler species that breed in holes. (Lucy's Warbler is the other.)
* The name "Prothonotary" refers to clerks in the Roman Catholic church, whose robes were bright yellow.
