Blackpoll Warbler (Setophaga striata)
A small songbird, although common, the species is difficult to spot due to the preference to stay in the canopy of trees. Arrives late in spring after one of the largest non-stop over open water migrations from South America to North America. Primarily insectivorous.
How To Identify
Easily identifiable during breeding plumage when males are mostly black and white and females similar but more washed out, brownish. Distinguishable characteristics are the orange feet and white wing bars.
Where and When to Spot
Arrives later in Spring when vegetation already is dense. My only observation happened in Park de la Frayere.
