Cape May Warbler - Varadero, CU

Cuba is a natural stop on the way through for a great many birds while travelling north and south to summering and wintering grounds. The Varadero Peninsula is the furthest north you can go on the island before traveling over the gulf of Mexico. This stripped, rutsy-cheeked islander was in the larger tree in and around Varahicacos Ecological Reserve. A neat fact about this bird is that they have a tubular tongue and drink nectar. I have even seen a very off track bird in BC chase off hummingbirds to defend the flowers they need to keep their energy up.
