parula (little titmouse) americana (of America)
Tuesday, May 6, 1980 — 2:15 pm
Pontiac, Illinois — Vermilion River
A friend and I wandered along to the Vermilion River. We sat on the bank to pass the time. I spotted the Parula foraging in the trees near the bridge that carries the Amtrak tracks across the river. It was with a flock of Myrtle Warblers. I was able to approach within three feet.
