Blackpoll Warbler

Long distance flyer

Viewed 6 Times

Fun fact about the Blackpoll Warbler I found on Cornell’s All About Birds:

“Blackpoll Warblers are long-distance athletes and they hold the record for the longest overwater flight for a songbird. During the fall, these half-ounce warblers fly nonstop for up to 3 days, covering on average over 1,800 miles over the Atlantic Ocean to reach their wintering grounds in Puerto Rico, the Lesser Antilles, and northern South America.”
