Palm Warbler

The Palm Warbler, Dendroica palmarum, is a small songbird of the New World warbler family.

These birds have dark legs and thin pointed bills, and adults display a rusty cap. Eastern birds have brownish olive upperparts, yellow underparts, and rusty streaks on their breasts and flanks. Western birds have light underparts with darker streaks on their breasts and grey-brown upperparts.

Palm Warblers' breeding habitats are bog edges across Canada and the northeastern United States. Their nests are open cups, which are usually situated on, or near, the ground.

These birds migrate to the southeastern United States, Mexico and islands in the Caribbean.

Palm Warblers forage actively in conifers and on the ground, sometimes flying to catch insects. These birds mainly eat insects and berries.

The song of this bird is a monotonous trill. The call is a sharp chek.

These birds frequently bob their tail.
