Blackpoll Warbler (Dendroica striata) - HBW 15, p. 759
French: Paruline rayée
Spanish: Reinita Estriada
Taxonomy: Muscicapa striata J. R. Forster, 1772, Fort Severn, west coast of Hudson Bay, Canada.
Precise relationships unclear; D. castanea presumed to be closest relative of present species, but little information. Has hybridized with D. castanea; another hybrid involved Seiurus noveboracensis and either present species or, more probably, D. tigrina. Birds from Alaska described as a geographical race, lurida, but appear little different from those in rest of species' range. Monotypic.
Distribution: Breeds in Alaska and Canada (E to Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, and S to C British Columbia) and extreme NE United States (S to New York). Migrates to NE South America S to N Bolivia and W Brazil, mainly in W Amazonian region; smaller numbers may winter S to NE Argentina and coastal SE Brazil.
