Macgillivray s warbler

The MacGillivray's warbler was named by John James Audubon in honor of Scottish ornithologist William MacGillivray, although the proper credit to its discovery goes to John Kirk Townsend. The scientific name "tolmiei" was given in honor of William Fraser Tolmie.

Adult MacGillivray's warblers will grow to be approximately 13 cm {5 to 6 inches} in length. They are an olive-green color on their upperparts and dull yellow below. Males have black heads and breasts, while females and immature birds have drab light gray heads and broken white eye-rings. MacGillivray's warblers are almost identical to their eastern counterparts, the mourning warblers, the primary difference between the two species being the mourning warbler's lack of an eye-ring.
