Cape May Warbler
The Cape May warbler is a species of New World warbler. It breeds in northern North America. Its breeding range spans all but the westernmost parts of southern Canada, the Great Lakes region, and New England and the eastern coast of the USA.
The tongue of the Cape May Warbler is unique among warblers. It is curled and semitubular, used to collect nectar.
