Northern Parulas in Iceland
Back to main page

Northern Parulas Parula americana are one of the more common American wood-warblers in Iceland, although only three have been found since 1962, when regular for a few years. Eight have been recorded in Iceland, the first being found dead at Vík (in the extreme south) in October 1913 (at that time the first European record!).
