Cape May Warbler     Setophaga tigrina

Cape May Warblers breed across the boreal forests of Canada and northern United States.  They spend their winters in the islands of the West Indies.

During migration, these birds pass through Florida.  They are a fairly common spring migrant in the Keys and the Peninsula, except inland, and rare in the Panhandle.  In fall, they are less frequent, but are very common on the lower east coast.
