I often have Chickadees do that just to get a drink out of the ant
trap. My mother used to have a device attached to the side of the house
that contained water and had a black cover (to keep the water from
freezing in the winter) with just a small hole in its center. The
Chickadees loved to drink out of that. Maybe your warbler has a similar
taste for water trapped in tree cavities?
