MacGillivray's Warbler (Geothlypis tolmiei)

MacGillivray's Warbler
The first Nearctic fall migrant birds can be seen in Guatemala in July and August, including Louisiana Waterthrush, Black-and-white Warbler, and Hammond's Flycatcher … but the big waves of tens of thousands of migratory songbirds hit Guatemala until the end of September/October, usually together with the first northern cold fronts. While North American forests become quieter during this time because of the departure of the avian migrants, Guatemalan forests get a boost by the arrival of these birds. The rainy season has turned the forests around Antigua Guatemala in lush green habitats full of arthropods and fruit, providing food for both resident and visiting birds. Again the tchik-calls of MacGillivray's Warbler (Geothlypis tolmiei) – here a male – can be heard in the dense, shrubby understory of the forests around Antigua Guatemala.
