    Cape May Warbler
    By Colleen Rowe and Needa Iqbal

    The Cape May is from the warbler family. Its Latin name is Dendroica tigrina. The male has a yellow below with a chestnut cheek patch, white wing patch and black strips on underparts. The female is much duller version of the male with greenish-yellow cheeks.

    Their winter range is southern Florida and the Caribbean region. Their summer range is southern Mackenzie, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec south in Nova Scotia, Maine, northern New York, Michigan and north Dakota. They nest in spruce and fir trees.

    The voice is a very high thin "seet seet seet seet".
