Peek-a-boo and Warblers 2

Northern Parula

By: Pat Coate

Happily a recent trip to Allegany State Park yielded a warbler that I don’t often see – a Northern Parula. It, along with several other birds, seemed to be playing peek-a-boo with me while working its way through this beautiful flowering tree. Some field marks for the Northern Parula visible to varying degrees in the photo include white crescents around the eyes, white wing bars (2), yellow neck and chest with a reddish bar across the chest, and grey-blue head and wings.

Sweet-sweet-sweet-I’m-so-sweet….one of the few mnemonics I agree with!

Chipping Sparrow

These widespread sparrows are identified by their bright cap, grey chest, white eyebrow and black eye line.
