French: Paruline à gorge orangée
Spanish: Reinita Gorjinaranja
Taxonomy: Motacilla fusca Statius Müller, 1776, Guyane = French Guiana.
Affinities within genus uncertain; some suggestions that closest relative may be D. cerulea, this based mainly on similarity of songs. Has hybridized with D. castanea and at least once with Mniotilta varia, also possibly with D. pensylvanica and possibly with D. kirtlandii. Monotypic.
Distribution: Breeds from S Canada (C Saskatchewan, locally from Alberta, E to S Newfoundland and Nova Scotia) S in NE USA to C Wisonsin and New England, and in Appalachians to extreme N Georgia. Migrates to Central America and NW South America, S in Andes to C Peru and, less commonly, C Bolivia.
