NORTHERN PARULA

A small warbler of the upper canopy, the Northern Parula can be found in two rather distinct populations. The southern population nests primarily in hanging Spanish moss, while the northern population uses the similar-looking old man’s beard lichen.

Abundant during spring migration, this species is often heard before seen.Β  They prefer the tops of large trees and can be found in most forested areas in Essex County during May.Β  One year atΒ Point Pelee National Park, more than 100 individuals were recorded on a short section of trail along the west side of the park.
