All About Birds shares that the Prothonotary Warbler got its name from the bright yellow robes worn by papal clerks, known as prothonotaries, in the Roman Catholic church. 

Kevin took this photo back in June at Grand Ravines North Park. See more in his Birds gallery on Flickr!

  1. Thanks again for your articles and pictures. Liked the picture of the Warbler. We miss being able to see the Hummingbirds since we were told to remove the bird feeders due to the bird disease in our area. Thanks again.
