Blackpoll Warbler (Setophaga striata)

from the Sibley Guide to Birds, 2nd edition

In the spring Blackpoll Warblers travel across the Caribbean, arriving in Florida in April and fanning out to their breeding grounds in the boreal forest from Newfoundland to Alaska. In the fall they take a very different route, from maritime Canada and New England heading almost due south over the ocean, past Bermuda and the Lesser Antilles, finally landing on the northeast coast of South America.
