Magnolia Warbler

The Magnolia Warbler, Dendroica magnolia , is a New World warbler. It breeds across most of Canada as well as New England and the Great Lakes region of the US.

The Magnolia Warbler is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The Magnolia Warbler, a boreal forest breeder, has conspicuous black and yellow markings and a distinctive tail pattern, making it one of North America’s more recognized wood-warblers. Alexander Wilson collected the first specimen of this species in 1810 from a magnolia tree in Mississippi and gave it the inappropriate specific name magnolia, but his English name for the species was Black-and-yellow Warbler. The Magnolia Warbler nests alongside the congeneric Black-throated Green (D. virens), Blackburnian (D. fusca), and Yellow-rumped (D. More

The Magnolia Warbler, Dendroica magnolia , is a New World warbler. It breeds across most of Canada as well as New England and the Great Lakes region of the U.S. It is migratory, wintering in Central America. This species is a very rare vagrant to western Europe. The summer male Magnolia Warbler is unmistakable in appearance. It has a black back and face with a white supercilium and gray crown. The underparts and rump are yellow, and the breast band is black.

Magnolia Warbler: Eats mostly insects, but also feeds on berries. Gleans insects from undersides of leaves and from bark crevices; frequently spreads its tail, exposing bold white patches. Readily Eats Sugar Water, Fruit, Nut Pieces Vocalization Magnolia Warbler: Song is a "weeta-weeta-weeteo." Call note is "tslip." Similar Species Magnolia Warbler: Prairie, Kirtland's, Black-throated Green, and Blackburnian warblers lack gray breast bands and white tail patches. . More

* The Magnolia Warbler was named in 1810 by Alexander Wilson, who collected a specimen from a magnolia tree in Mississippi. He used the English name "Black-and-yellow Warbler" and used "magnolia" for the Latin species name, which became the common name over time. More

The Magnolia Warbler is a handsome and familiar warbler of the northern forests. Though it often forages conspicuously and close to the ground, we have relatively scant information on its nesting behavior. More

Magnolia Warblers nest in a young conifer, laying 3-5 eggs in a flimsy cup nest. Both parents feed the young. These birds feed on insects and spiders, often found while foraging low in shrubs. The birds will hover while tracking prey. They sometimes eat berries in stormy weather, when their preferred food is scarce. The song is a weety weety wee. The call is a soft ship. More

Appalachian Mountains, Magnolia Warblers commonly breed in stands of hemlock. Rarely, they may nest in drier oak-hickory woodlands. Magnolia Warblers are tolerant of disturbed woodlands and readily use recovering clearcuts, edges, and other types of forest openings. Although Magnolia Warblers will eat berries during inclement weather, they use less vegetable food than other Dendroica warblers and are normally exclusively insectivorous. They glean insects from the undersides of leaves and occasionally from bark crevices at low to middle levels of the forest. More

The abundant Magnolia Warbler is boldly patterned in yellow, black, and white, and is common across eastern North America during migration. The very dense, young conifer habitat in which Magnolia Warblers nest make studying its breeding ecology difficult, and much remains to be learned about them. Several studies have noted an apparent increase in nest parasitism by Brown-headed Cowbirds, although none have determined what effect it may be having on Magnolia Warblers. More

The Magnolia Warbler is one of the most striking warblers. The upper parts are blackish with large white patches on the wings and tail. The under parts are yellow, with heavy black stripes almost resembling a long hanging necklace. The female is not as bright as the male and has less distinct black stripes on the chest. This warbler is approximately 12 cm in length and weighs 9-11 grams. More

The Magnolia Warbler (Emberizidae: Parulinae: Dendroica magnolia) is a Neotropical migrant with a misleading name, since it breeds not in the Southeastern U.S. where magnolia trees flourish but in New England, southern Canada, and higher elevations in the Appalachians. Males in breeding plumage (above) are striking with their bright yellow breasts, black masks, and large white wingbars and tail spots. More

Magnolia Warbler, Dendroica magnolia, adult maleThis poorly chosen technical epithet led to the modern-day common name of Magnolia Warbler, which misleads birders even more. Unbeknownst to Wilson, the Magnolia Warblers he encountered were spring migrant birds on their way toward Canada-far north of the range of the Southern Magnolia tree in which he first saw them. Wilson would have served science better had he called the species something like Sylvia sprucea, the Spruce Warbler, for in Canada and the northeastern U.S. More

The Magnolia Warbler breeds in the Northern Boreal Forest dipping down into the transitional regions with the Eastern Deciduous Forest. The species winters in the tropics. Characteristic Features: The Magnolia Warbler is bright yellow below with prominent black streaks. A black mask edged with white above covers the eye, although these markings are far stronger in the male than the female. There are broad, white patches on the sides of the tail. More

Magnolia Warbler has distinctive combination of yellow underparts and rump patch, grey head (blackish at sides and with white supercilium above and behind eye in summer males), whitish eye-ring, greenish mantle (blackish in summer males), and double white wing bars (fairly solid white patch in summer males). More

The adult male Magnolia Warbler has a crown of bluish gray with a line over the eye, two wing bars, white tail black back yellow with striking black bars underneath. The color of the female is subdued and the stripes on the underparts are greatly reduced. The Magnolia Warbler is a sluggish, slow-moving warbler usually found moving about at low heights rather than among the treetops. Though beautifully colored, its song is only mediocre. More

The Magnolia Warblers that Wilson found in Mississippi were migrating from Central America to their northern breeding grounds. "Spruce Warbler" might be a more appropriate name because the Magnolia Warbler most often breeds in moist forests of spruce and other conifers. The breeding range extends from the Yukon Territories and British Columbia across the boreal forests of Canada to Labrador, and south to northern Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan, throughout New England and locally south in the Appalachians to West Virginia.

Took this photo of a male Magnolia Warbler while up at Magee Marsh earlier this year. Magee Marsh is a temporary stop over home to many beautiful migrating birds which pass through Ohio each year.

The Magnolia Warbler lives by itself or in pairs. This bird is easy to watch because it lives low in the forest and is not very shy. The Magnolia Warbler is energetic and quite active. It is not a very territorial or aggressive bird and does not usually show aggression to other birds. The Magnolia Warbler sings most of the day seemingly to show itself off. The Magnolia Warbler is monogamous and they create nests in low branches or twigs. More
