Nashville Warbler

Check SpellingNashville warbler The Nashville warbler is a wood-warbler that breeds in southern Canada and the northern United States. They migrate for the winter to southern Texas, Mexico and Central America. They were named by Alexander Wilson who first observed them around Nashville,TN in 1811 while they were migrating. Migration is the only time that the Nashville warbler is near Nashville.
Nashville warbler Most of the Nashville warblers breed in the east half of North America. However there is a population that breeds in western North America, northern California, Oregon, Washington, western Montana and British Columbia. This population of Nashville warblers was once considered a different species called the Calaveras warbler. They are brighter then the eastern population with more white on the belly and a longer tale.

you call this a grey warbler or a yellow warbler. The senior chior in my church call themselves grey warbler, the younger group tease them to be wobbler.
