Northern Parula

This Northern Parula is yet another of the warblers in our yard on 10 May 2017. Early ornithologists named this bird the Blue Yellow-backed Warbler. Paula means small bird or little titmouse.

The bird breeds across eastern North America, with a gap between northern and southern populations. Northern birds build nests of Beard Moss, while southern ones use Spanish Moss. Eastern and western populations, on the other hand, differ in song patterns.
