A very pretty canopy warbler species common throughout the Southeastern US. It frequently comes down to visit shallow birdbaths that are near shelter (in our case an evergreen viburnum about 18 feet tall) or even to our mesh feeder with chopped peanuts, particularly during winter.

Such a pretty little bird! My Fl bird book says this one is a common year-round resident breeding throughout the north and central part of the state. Today is the first time I've ever seen one. Late this afternoon there was a little male at the feeder, probably eating the meal worms.
