As migratory birds, palm warblers travel northward to their preferred breeding grounds every spring, with males arriving a few weeks ahead of females.
Females build cup-shaped nests out of peat moss and other soft plant materials on the ground or near the base of a tree. They lay clutches of four to five creamy white eggs with brown markings which hatch after 12 days. Both parents help feed the nestlings. After about 12 days, the young fledge the nest.
