Bird #136 — Northern Parula

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.
