The MacGillivray's warbler (Geothlypis tolmiei) is a small species of New World warbler. These birds are sluggish and heavy warblers, preferring to spend most of their time on, or near the ground, except when singing. The scientific name "tolmiei" was given in honor of William Fraser Tolmie. MacGillivray's warblers are migratory and spend their summers in temperate forests in the western United States, and in boreal forests of west Canada. In autumn, these birds migrate to Central America, where they stay in temperate shrublands for the winter. Order: Passeriformes, Family: Parulidae, Genus: Geothlypis, Species: Geothlypis tolmiei (Townsend, 1839), Synonyms: Oporornis tolmiei.
