    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.
