Nounwarbler (plural warblers)
TranslationsA bird of the Parulidae family
There are a number of Passeriformes (perching birds) called "warblers". They are not particularly closely related, but share some characteristics, such as being fairly small, active and insectivorous.
They are mostly brownish or dull greenish in color, of small size, easier seen than heard, and hard to identify to species. To Old World birders, "warblers" are the archetypal "LBJs" ("little brown jobs").
Sylvioid "warblers"These are somewhat closer related to each other than to other "warblers". They belong to a superfamily also containing Old World babblers, bulbuls, etc.
- "Old World warblers", formerly all in family Sylviidae
- Leaf-warblers, now in family Phylloscopidae
- Typical bush-warblers, now in family Cettiidae
- Grass warblers and megalurid bush-warblers, now in family Megaluridae
- Marsh- and tree warblers, now in family Acrocephalidae
- True warblers or sylviid warblers, remaining in family Sylviidae or moved into Timaliidae
- Malagasy warblers, a newly assembled family ("Bernieridae")
- Cisticolid warblers, family Cisticolidae
- "African warblers", possibly another novel family
Passeroid "warblers"The two families of American "warblers" are part of another superfamily, which unites them with sparrows, buntings, finches, etc
- Tit-warblers or flycatcher-tits, family Stenostiridae
honeyeaters and fairy-wrens.
