CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Palm Warbler (Setophaga palmarum)
I’ve been watching this bird all week long snagging insects but also enjoying the seeds of Bidens alba. This is a new bird for me and it caught my eye as it “wagged” its tale which is why I’m pretty confident of this identification. It stays low in the Bidens and as seen in the photo will occasionally hop up on low branches of some shrubs.
A winter resident in Florida.
Diet: Insects; some seeds and fruits in fall and winter.
Shown on Florida Native Plant: CHICKASAW PLUM (Prunus angustifolia)
