Inktober Day 2: Divided

The Yellow-rumped Warbler complex (Setophaga coronata) has variously been split and lumped into several species. Three of the most distinctive are the Myrtle Warbler (above), Audubon’s Warbler (right), and Black-fronted Warbler (left). Recently there has been a proposal to divide them once again into separate species.

Cape May Warbler (Setophaga tigrina)

Although it was named for Cape May, New Jersey, where it was first described, the Cape May Warbler is not a common sight there. It has a unique semi-tubular tongue that it uses to sip nectar in the winter.
