Northern Parula

A small denizen of the eastern North American forests is the Parula Warbler. This species winters in eastern Mexico and in the West Indies. This bird was named Blue Yellow-backed Warbler by early ornithologists, and Finch Creeper by its discoverer. Parula Warblers glean insects and spiders from the tree canopy. I found this one in the Cannon River Wilderness Area of Rice County this past May.
