Nectar Feedering Warbler

Palm Warblers were common everywhere we went in South Florida, including Dry Tortugas. The brown western race seemed to fill the niche which I usually associate with sparrows - low shrub, low branches, open understory, and grassy areas - quite different from what we usually see as these birds make their early return to our northern climes.

What was unexpected, and completely new to me, was to see them drinking nectar.

Good Birding !!
