Black-Throated Gray Warbler

Setophaga nigrescens

The Black-Throated Gray Warbler breeds in western North America, its range extending from southwestern British Columbia along the Pacific coast, and east to New Mexico and southern Montana. It winters mostly in Mexico.

Formerly classified as a member of Dendroica (wood warbler), the genus of many new world warblers was changed in 2011, when geneticists weighed in with results of ongoing studies of avian genomes. The new genus for this bird is Setophaga (moth eater).
