Palm warblers


Palm Warbler finally holds still for the briefest of moments.


I have been seeing these active little birds with wagging tails and chestnut caps around the neighborhood. Their calls are “weak trills,” “thin tsips” or “sharp chips.”

Snowbirds like some of my neighbors, it appears…


Despite its tropical sounding name, the Palm Warbler lives farther north than most other warblers. It breeds far to the north in Canada, and winters primarily in the southern United States and northern Caribbean.

And despite their name, I haven’t seen them in any palm trees!
