The lower mandible is yellow, the color blending with the throat color. The beady black eye is set off with white spots above and below.

Taxonomy: Passeriformes, Parulidae.

Where to Find: Don't look for Northern Parulas around Las Vegas. Rather, look for them in the southeastern US during summer or in Central America during winter. Keen an eye out, however, as migrants sometimes straggle through our area.
