"Virginia's Warbler"
Virginia's Warbler:   

"The Virginia's Warbler is a small, gray warbler with a big-eyed look and sports yellow highlights on the chest and under the rump. It hops with a twitch through vegetation, wagging its tail and picking insects from trees and shrubs as it goes. This easily overlooked warbler hails from pinyon-pine and oak woodlands in the Southwest, not Virginia as its name might imply. It occupies a small area in the United States and is a species of conservation concern." ["All About Birds", Cornell Lab of Ornithology]

"Spencer F. Baird first described the Virginia's Warbler in 1860, naming it after Virginia Anderson, the wife of Dr. W. W. Anderson, who collected the first specimen in 1858 in New Mexico." ["All About Birds", Cornell Lab of Ornithology]
