DescriptionBachman's Warbler ( V ermivora bachmanii) is on the verge of extinction; no populations are known. Recent systematic searches in widely separated parts of its range failed to locate nesting birds (Stevenson 1972, pers. comm., Hamel et al. 1976). The 2 most recently published sightings were apparently of transient birds as each was seen only once (Imhof 1973, American Ornithologists' Union 1975). Most observations of the bird were made in the late 1800's and early 1900's when little attention was given to habitat. Often habitat descriptions were ambiguous and thus, misleading when considered alone. By comparing the varied descriptions collectively, a clearer conception of the warbler's habitat evolves. Much of the information on the nesting habitat of Bachman's Warbler is unpublished and generally not known to exist. We reviewed published and unpublished descriptions of habitat in order to better identify the most likely breeding areas.
