Cape May warblers (Setophaga tigrina) specialize in eating spruce budworms, but also use their pointed beaks and semitubular tongues to suck nectar from blossoms. On May 19 and 20, 2018, I filmed both male and female Cape May warblers on a cotoneaster bush in Central Park as they fed on the blossoms. There were so many warblers that we called the cotoneaster the "magic bush."
This latest addition to the Filming the Feathers series is set to music by Johann Sebastian Bach, performed by Papalin and obtained from MusOpen.org, a royalty-free music source.
These photos and screen grabs from the video were taken on May 19 and 20, 2018, in Central Park.
