New World Warblers (Parulidae)

Whistling Warbler (Catharopeza bishopi) - HBW 15, p. 761

French: Paruline de Saint-Vincent German: Pfeifwaldsänger Spanish: Reinita de San Vicente

Taxonomy: Leucopeza bishopi Lawrence, 1878, St Vincent.
Appears to be closely related to, and sometimes regarded as an aberrant member of genus Dendroica, from which it differs in having characteristic tail-cocking habit; perhaps closest to Dendroica plumbea, Dendroica pharetra and Dendroica angelae, which it resembles in retaining distinctive immature plumage throughout first year until first complete moult. Monotypic.

Distribution: St Vincent, in S Lesser Antilles.
