Black-and-white Creeper

I was reading the other day that the Black-and-white Warbler was once called the Black-and-white Creeper by many naturalists, such a perfect name! This is one of my favorite warblers and luckily for me, it overwinters here in South Florida so I see them for a good part of the year. The photo above was taken this past week at Green Cay. This young warbler put on quite the show circling and circling closer and closer until it was only a few feet away from a small crowd of visitors. I must have taken a dozen or more shots but this was my favorite. Oh, little black and white creeper, I'm going to miss you. Summer will be here before we know it, I feel it in the air...or should I say humidity.
