Northern Parula Finds A Caterpillar
All alone, slowly walking….I could hear a tap..tap..tap..tap. What is that?
I narrowed it down to the lower part of a bush, peering in with my lens.
Perched on a branch, a female Northern Parula was in possession of a tasty meal and slapping it back and forth against the branch. I couldn’t believe I heard that.
Here’s a six-photo sequence of the action before my battery stopped.

Giving my battery time to catch up, I missed the ‘down the hatch’ shot, but here are my final two with the caterpillar all but gone.
“Caterpillar All But Gone”
“Aaaack” or “Buuurp”
And just as quick, she was done and took flight to find another!
