Taken in Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula (EUP)

Magnolia Warblers nest in the smaller spruces along the cooler shores of northern Lake Huron in the EUP.  They have no trouble finding Spruce budworm there.  Their numbers have increased and their nesting territories have gotten smaller.

The dark background sets off this colorful warbler beautifully, and the budworm is a bonus. Well done, Paul.
