Yellow-throated Warbler (Dendroica dominica) - HBW 15, p. 753
French: Paruline à gorge jaune
Spanish: Reinita Gorjiamarilla
Other common names: Sutton's Warbler (hybrid with Parula americana)
Taxonomy: Motacilla dominica Linnaeus, 1766, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
Forms a superspecies with D. graciae, D. adelaidae, D. subita and D. delicata. Isolated race flavescens quite distinctive, and some authors have suggested that it may merit full species rank. In contrast, some recent work has suggested that the three mainland races are so weakly differentiated, with variation primarily clinal, that they should be combined as one. Proposed race axantha (described from Ohio) considered inseparable from albilora. Hybridization with Parula americana recorded. Four subspecies provisionally recognized.
Subspecies and Distribution:
- albilora S. F. Baird, 1873 - breeds EC USA from E Iowa, SE Kansas and C Texas E to Appalachians; migrates to Middle America (mainly E Mexico S to Nicaragua, casually Costa Rica).
- dominica ( Linnaeus, 1766) - breeds E of Appalachians from Pennsylvania S to C Florida; winters in SE USA (South Carolina S to Florida) and Caribbean (mainly Bahamas and Greater Antilles).
- stoddardi Sutton, 1951 - NW Florida and coastal Alabama.
- flavescens Todd, 1909 - N Bahama Is (Grand Bahama and Great Abaco).
