New World warblerA member of the family Parulidae, which is confined to North and South America except for wanderers, some of which, such as the Blackpoll Warbler Dendroica striata, have reached the British Isles. They are unrelated to the Old World warblers (family Sylviidae) and are sometimes called 'wood warblers', not to be confused with the Wood Warbler Phylloscopus sibilatrix of the Old World.
