Canada WarblerCardellina canadensis
- ORDER: Passeriformes
- FAMILY: Parulidae
A colorful, active warbler of northern forests, the Canada Warbler spends little time on its breeding grounds. It is one of the last warblers to arrive north in the spring, and one of the first to leave in the fall, heading early to its South American wintering grounds.More ID Info

- Cool Facts
- Not much is known about the mating system of the Canada Warbler, but it appears to be monogamous. The observation of male-female pairs in Panama during fall and spring migration suggests that the pair may stay together year round.
- The oldest recorded Canada Warbler was a male, and at least 8 years old when he was found in Quebec in 1982. He had been banded in the same province in 1975.
