Tennessee Warbler

Vermivora peregrina

The Tennessee Warbler has never been proven to nest in the Bay State; however, the presence of a singing male throughout the breeding season at a station in Berkshire County was sufficient to list the species as “possible” in the Massachusetts Breeding Bird Atlas. It is unlikely that the species has ever nested in Massachusetts, although there are several summer records of singing birds well south of the nearest breeding localities in northern New England.

During migration Tennessee Warblers are irregularly common spring and generally uncommon fall transients in Massachusetts.
