I always wear my black cap! Wilson's Warbler in Parksville

Ralph was fast enough to catch up to this Wilson’s Warbler you can just see his black cap.   This vibrant yellow bird is amazing. It is as if you were in a tropical jungle!  Also, the warblers eat lots of bugs, a good friend for your garden.
