When I think of all the warblers there are, my head begins to spin. There are Old World Warblers (families Sylviidae and Cisticolidae), Wood Warblers or New World Warblers (family Parulidae), and Australian Warblers (family Acanthizidae). Our little friend here, being that he is found on our continent would fall into the family of New World warblers. Judging by the name, you would think this is a resident of its namesake. Well you're wrong! They don't actually breed in that state; just passing through, thank you very much. They were first "discovered" in Connecticut. I prepared a little male. Males have a fairly well pronounced grey hood.
