Despite its name, the Palm Warbler is among the northernmost of any Dendroica species. Described by J. P. Gmelin from a wintering specimen on Hispaniola, this warbler winters primarily in southeastern and Gulf Coast regions of the United States. Its breeding distribution generally corresponds to the distribution of bogs and fens in boreal forests of Canada and the northern United States. Among congeners, only the Blackpoll Warbler (D. striata) has a more northerly breeding distribution. More

The Palm Warbler has a significantly wide range, reaching up to 3,400,000 square kilometers. This bird can be found in the United States, Canada, Mexico, areas of the Caribbean, and parts of Central America. Its habitat is varied and includes forests, shrubland, wetlands, grassland and even urban areas, rural gardens and pastureland. The global population of this species is estimated to be around 23,000,000 individual birds. More

Palm Warblers forage actively in conifers and on the ground, sometimes flying to catch insects. These birds mainly eat insects and berries. The song of this bird is a monotonous trill. The call is a sharp chek. These birds frequently bob their tail. More

The Palm Warbler (Dendroica palmarum) is a very active wood-warbler. It feeds on insects from the ground in marshy, weedy or brushy areas, although it will occasionally take them from the air as well. It frequently bobs its tail while hopping about and has yellow undertail coverts, both of which are give-aways for identification. This is a fun bird to watch, but we had never encountered one prior to the first experience described below. More

The rusty-capped Palm Warbler can be most easily recognized by the tail-wagging habit that shows off its yellow undertail. It breeds in bogs and winters primarily in the southern United States and Caribbean. More

The Palm Warbler, Dendroica palmarum, is a small songbird of the New World warbler family. The species comprises two distinct subspecies that may merit specific status. "Yellow Palm-Warbler" (D. p. hypochrysea) of the eastern third of the breeding range has brownish-olive upper parts and thoroughly yellow underparts with bold rufous breast and flank streaking. It migrates later in the fall than its western counterpart. "Western Palm-Warbler" (D. p. More

Palm Warblers breed on the edges of boreal-forest bogs. During migration, when they are seen in Washington, they are usually found in hedgerows, thickets, and other edge habitats along the coast, often frequenting thickets of non-native Scots broom. back to top Behavior - Outside of the breeding season, especially during migration, Palm Warblers may join mixed flocks. They are usually found fairly low, in the understory or on the ground. More

An estimated 98% of the global population of Palm Warbler breeds in Canada's boreal forest. The Palm Warbler is unlike most wood-warblers, because it prefers breeding habitats that are open and unwooded. It is also one of very few species that takes advantage of black spruce bog environments and often nests in areas with scattered trees and heavy undergrowth. Consequently, its breeding distribution generally corresponds to the distribution of these bogs and fens in boreal forests of Canada. More

Palm Warbler is found in two forms. Western Palm Warbler (Dendroica palmatrum palmarum) breeds in the West part of the range. It is duller, and has whitish belly. Yellow Palm Warbler (Dendroica palmarum hypochrysea) breeds in the East part. It is entirely yellow underneath. Palm Warbler is a relatively large, dull greyish-olive warbler in most plumages, with diffuse streaking on mantle and flanks of varying intensity. More

Palm Warblers have two races - "Western" Palm Warbler and "Eastern" or "Yellow" Palm Warbler. The western race is found in Michigan, and The Birds of Michigan reports that the eastern race (which breeds from Quebec to northern New England) is "at best casual" in the state and gives one documented record, a bird banded in Kalamazoo in 1990.
