Cape May Warbler
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|From trip to Allegany, NY.|
The Cape May Warbler breeds across the boreal forest of Canada and the northern United States, where the fortunes of its populations are largely tied to the availability of spruce budworms, its preferred food. Striking in appearance but poorly understood, the species spends its winters in the West Indies, collecting nectar with its unique curled, semitubular tongue.
•Yellow chest with thin black stripes.
•Reddish and yellow face.
•Pale sides of neck contrast with darker face.
