They arrive in the Touraine Loire Valley in April and depart again in September after having spent the summer here. They feed on ants and beetles that they forage from the undergrowth in dense broadleaf woodland and scrub. They nest in thick vegetation, very close to the ground.
Their French name is le Rossignol.
