TENNESSEE WARBLER (Vermivora peregrina) - breed in Canada and northern  US in boreal forests and migrate south to Mexico, C. America, and S. America where they live in second growth forests.  They feast on insects, moth caterpillars, fruit and nectar. They are known to steal nectar from flowers by pecking a hole at the base of the flower to drink the nectar. They avoid getting bothersome pollen on their faces, but also get out of doing their part to help pollinate the plants!
