Northern Parula

Northern Parula

This small warbler caught my eye as I walked a path through a wooded area. He flitted along ahead of me, in and out of the sun patches, finally pausing in a fairly open spot for a few images.

I had to look him up for ID and found that it is a Northern Parula, which are known for spending their time in the tree canopy, not down close to the ground. When he left this spot he did fly up and I didn’t get another good view of him.

    1. He really is, Mike! The colors are quite a nice combo. They are another one that flits along elusively just inside the branches—really a matter of luck that this one paused on the outside edge.
