Dalas & idaho Spud

think you are right looks like a juvenile female Tropical Parula. nothing else comes close.  

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 10, 2012 at 12:15pm

Dallas, I have mostly sparrows, too. I play CD bird songs trying to attract in the birds I know live in this area. Occasionally gold finch, woodpeckers, and hawks drop in and of course, the sky is full of crows and pigeons but they don't land here. If anyone has any other ideas for attracting birds, please let me know.

Certainly looks the same. The slight differences may be differences in gender. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 10, 2012 at 11:32am

Although the bill is not the right shape.  I got my picture from Google, and after reading about it, mine may be a hybrid.  Wikipedia shows the Tropical Parula as being more black than blue.  What do I know?  Not much.
