About the Magnolia Warbler

Also known as: Black-and-yellow Warbler, Blue-headed Yellow-rumped Warbler, Spotted Warbler, Dendroica maculosa, Dendroica magnolia

The Magnolia Warbler is a species of wood warbler that breeds across much of southeastern Canada, with some birds breeding in far northeastern parts of the U.S. They winter in Central America and the Caribbean.

Breeding male Magnolia Warblers are beautiful. Their plumage combines black, bright yellow, white and grey feathers. Their yellow breasts are heavily streaked with dark lines, and their faces are accentuated with a black mask and a broken white eyering.
