White-lored Warbler Myiothlypis conspicillata

  • Order: Passeriformes
  • Family: Parulidae
  • Monotypic
  • Authors: Camila Gómez Montes


The reproductive biology of White-lored Warbler is largely unknown. The breeding season is assumed to occur from late March through to July ,supported in part by an increase in the detection of singing males and individuals caught in mist nets with developed brood patches and cloacal protuberances during this period (personal observation).

The only known nest description is that by Todd and Carriker (1922) who describe the nest as a dome built on the ground among the roots of trees. The eggs are white with chestnut speckling and apparently females lay between 3 and 4 eggs per clutch (Todd and Carriker 1922).There are no data on incubation, nestling periods or on parental care for the species.
