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.

Three of the world’s rarest tiger cubs have made their public debut at ZSL London Zoo, just in time for Mothers’ Day. The seven-week-old tigers joined mother, Melati, when she ventured outside to stretch her legs, and appeared delighted with their new play area.
