Abstract

A peculiar specimen of wood warbler was taken from a mist net just inland from the beach at Ocean City, Maryland, on 17 September 1965. The specimen appears to represent a hybrid of the Northern Waterthrush (Seiurus noveboracensis) and the Blackpoll Warbler (Dendroica striata). This unique intergeneric hybrid suggests the close relationship of Seiurus and Dendroica, and thus tends to corroborate their adjacent position in most classifications of wood warblers.
