Hermit Warbler

Setophaga occidentalis

The Hermit Warblers are shy birds that dwell in open coniferous forests. Their summer breeding range is most of the west coast of the United States up to Washington.

In 2011, scientists who study genetics shook up the genus of nearly every new world warbler species. Dendroica (wood warbler) was abandoned and replaced with Setophaga (moth eater). Gone now is Dendroica occidentalis. Say hello to Setophaga occidentalis!
