15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A curious Northern Parula.

As a birdwatcher, I come across many different species while out in the field but sometimes you come across one bird that is unlike any other. While birdwatching at my parents Key Largo beach house, I noticed a small warbler bouncing from branch to branch. As I got closer, I noticed it was the gorgeous Northern Parula, but this specific bird was extremely curious. As I approached the bird, it only hopped closer to me and began to look straight up at my camera.
