Warblers are flooding into the Midwest. Most of them will wash right on through, on their way to their breeding grounds to the north.
But for a few glorious spring weeks, the woods are hopping with small, colorful birds. Like this palm warbler, one of dozens working their way through the new foliage today.
Even without a close enough look to see the red cap and yellow throat, you'd recognize the palm warbler by the constant bobbing of its tail.
