Its other names are Blue Yellow-backed Warbler, Blue Yellow-back, Finch creeper, and Northern Parula. Its upper parts are bluish-gray and yellowish olive-green, under parts are generally yellow and white. The female is just slightly duller in color than the male. Their nests are usually made in Usnea moss. Interweaving the strands, adding some soft plant fibers, and lining it with filaments of the same material creates the nest. The eggs are creamy white somewhat glossy, and thickly speckled with brown or reddish-brown. They can amount to 7 eggs in a nest, but more likely it would be around 4.The Parula Warbler lives in the southern states, from Florida to Alabama to the Virginian coast.
