Blackburnian Warbler in Mahogany Bay, Honduras.

Blackburnian Warbler in Mahogany Bay, Honduras.

The Blackburnian Warbler (Setophaga fusca [formerly Dendroica fusca]) is a small New World warbler. They breed in eastern North America, from southern Canada, westwards to the southern Canadian Prairies, the Great Lakes region and New England, to North Carolina.

Blackburnian Warblers are migratory, wintering in southern Central America and in South America, and are very rare vagrants to western Europe.

In summer, male Blackburnian warblers display dark gray backs and double white wing bars, with yellowish rumps and dark brown crowns. The underparts of these birds are white and are tinged with yellow and streaked black. The head is strongly patterned in yellow and black, with a flaming-orange throat. It is the only North American warbler with this striking plumage. [Wikipedia]

Blackburnian Warbler Facts [All About Birds]

  • No other North American warbler has an orange throat.
  • The Blackburnian Warbler is territorial on its breeding grounds and solitary in the winter. It forms flocks only during migration.
  • Although the Blackburnian Warbler does not associate with other birds while it is nesting, it will join foraging flocks of chickadees, kinglets, and nuthatches after the young fledge. The warbler will follow the mixed flock with its begging young. The begging of the warbler chicks can even attract chickadees.
  • The oldest recorded Blackburnian Warbler was a male, and at least 8 years, 2 months old when it was recaptured and rereleased during banding operations in Minnesota.
