About the Blackburnian Warbler

The Blackburnian Warbler is a gorgeous small species of new world warbler that breeds across parts of eastern North America. Breeding male Blackburnian Warblers are beautiful with a bright orange throat dominating an otherwise black and white body plumage.

Migratory birds, Blackburnian Warblers spend their winters far from their breeding grounds. Fall migration takes these small warblers south to Central American and into South America.
