Oreothlypis virginiae Order: Passeriformes Family: Parulidae (New World Warblers)
This easily overlooked, rather plain yet pretty warbler breeds in pinyon-pine and oak woodlands in the Southwest and winters on Mexican’s southern Pacific coastal area. It was named by Spencer F. Baird in 1860. He named it for Virginia Anderson, the wife of Dr. W. W. Anderson, who shot the first ornithological collection specimen in 1858 in New Mexico.
