Palm Warblers


After summer breeding in Canada where there are no palm trees, Palm Warblers migrate to southern Florida and the Caribbean region for the winter season.

Though the Palm Warbler’s name might imply it is a tropical bird, it’s actually one of the northernmost breeding of all warblers (except for the Blackpoll Warbler).

They were named when the first specimen was collected on Hispaniola, a Caribbean island that happen to have a lot of palm trees.

In Florida, however, you’re more likely to find the Palm Warbler foraging in low shrubs and isolated trees.

I’ve fallen in love with my next close-up photo, with the soft colors framing the Palm Warbler.
