Seeing Goldman's Warbler in Guatemala
with CAYAYA BIRDING

Godman's Warbler in Guatemala
Adult male Goldman's Warbler (Setophaga goldmani) in the Guatemalan highlands.

Four taxa are involved in the species complex of Yellow-rumped Warbler (Setophaga coronata s.l.): Audubon's Warbler (S. auduboni) breeding in western North America, Myrtle Warbler (S. coronata) breeding in northern North America, Black-fronted Warbler (S. nigrifrons) breeding in northern Mexico, and Goldman's Warbler (S. goldmani) breeding in Guatemala and southern Mexico. Various taxonomic authorities classify these taxa currently as subspecies or species. Three of them occur in Guatemala. Audubon's and Myrtle warblers are winter residents and transients, and Goldman's Warbler is a resident breeding bird.
