Mourning Warbler


IUCN Conservation Status: Least Concern

Common within its range, the Mourning Warbler is a small songbird of second-growth forests of eastern and central North America. It typically reveals its presence by its distinctive song of rolling phrases, usually remaining hidden in the low, thick vegetation.


Song a rhythmic series of rolling two-syllable phrases, usually lower at the end: "chirry, chirry, chirry, chorry, chorry." Also at least two distinct chip notes, one loud and harsh and the other higher.
