Three-banded Warbler Basileuterus trifasciatus

Sections

The Three-banded Warbler is confined to the Tumbesian center of endemism in southwest Ecuador and northwest Peru, although it has sometimes been considered to be conspecific with the much more geographically widespread Golden-crowned Warbler (Basileuterus culcivorus). The underparts are largely yellow and the upperparts olive-green, whilst the head is mainly gray, with black lateral coronal stripes, and a paler supercilium. Three-banded Warbler is practically confined to well-forested areas, although it will tolerate well-developed second growth, and it occurs locally to 3000 m.
