No palms about. Of course, this was migration, after all, so not necessarily their preferred habitat. But in this case, it's more a matter of a disinformational name. The Sibley guide says of this species: "nests in spruce bogs, but at other times it is found in small groups on grassy or weedy open ground, searching for insects and constantly pumping its tail." No palms mentioned at all I chanced on this one while doing a boardwalk loop through woods and wetlands. Managed to get some other walkers who came up behind me to stop and watch with me quietly while I got a few shots. This (cropped somewhat for composition) was the closest the bird let us come before I decided the other tourists had been patient enough and had to be allowed to pass. A lifer, and an extra thrill as it was one I found on my own rather than on one of the guided events I joined.

To me, this is a typical habitat shot for this Warbler. I've only ever seen them among tall grasses and high weeds.
