Palm warbler (Setophage palmarum)
Back from it's winter home in the southern U.S. or northern Caribbean, this palm warbler won't be finding any palms for a few months since an estimated 98% of them breed in bogs and fens of Canada's boreal forests.
Eastern form, which is brighter in colour than the western
Dozens of palm warblers were flitting about Tiny Marsh yesterday, alighting for mere seconds on branches before jumping to others. This tiny bird looked so handsome on this maple branch, the leaves just emerging. His rusty cap and yellow markings go well with the leaves, don't you think?
