Swainson's warbler Limnothlypis swainsonii


Identification Tips:

Similar species:

The pale supercilium, brown upperparts, and white underparts of the Swainson's Warbler are more reminiscent of a wren than a warbler. But wrens tend to carry their tails upright and have a very different shape. The Worm-eating Warbler has black and buff head stripes and a buffier breast.
