Most birds in the Warbler family have the word “warbler” in their names. Here are a few that don’t.
The Northern Parula (pronounced PAIR-oo-la), at 4¼ inches long, is one of our smallest warblers. Most other warblers are 4¾ to 5½ inches long. The Northern Parula is often hard to see because it tends to stay in the tree tops. It does sing a lot, however. Its buzzy, rising, trill of a song is so unique that you can usually recognize it after hearing it a few times.
