Swainson's Warbler

Limnothlypis swainsonii
  • ORDER: Passeriformes
  • FAMILY: Parulidae
Basic Description

One of the most secretive and least observed of all North American birds, the Swainson's Warbler is a skulking bird of the southern canebrakes and rhododendron thickets. If it weren't for its loud, ringing song, the presence of the species in many areas would go completely undetected.
