Palm Warbler

A palm warbler searching for food among the mangroves in the saltmarsh at Fort Mose Historic State Park in St. Augustine, Florida.

I recently took a friend to Fort Mose Historic State Park and came upon a palm warbler feeding among the mangroves in the saltmarsh. We saw other birds like osprey, great blue herons, and little blue herons. The palm warbler was my best photographic catch. Palm warblers have yellow feathers under their tail and can be seen bobbing their tail constantly. They spend a lot of time on the ground which is unusual for warblers.

Note the yellow feathers under the tail.

Signed copies of my book Basic Guide to Birds Found Near Water in St. Augustine is available locally at First Look the Artisans Market at 162 San Marco Rd. in St. Augustine. I will be at the Bougie Market from 10-2 at First Look on Sunday December 12 and will have my books and prints of the estuary and wildlife for sale.
