Parula Warbler

Compsothlypis americana americana

This is the southern form with the characteristics and mannerisms of the Northern Parula. About the only difference in its habits is the fact that it invariably selects drifts of Usnea for its home, probably because where it lives there is plenty of that moss.


Southeastern United States from the District of Columbia south to Alabama and Florida.
