Kirt′land's war′blerˈkɜrt ləndz(n.)
a gray-and-yellow wood warbler, Dendroica kirtlandii, that breeds only in north-central Michigan.
Origin of Kirtland's warbler:
1855–60, Amer.; after Jared Kirtland (1793–1877), U.S. naturalist
Kirtland's Warbler is a small songbird of the New World warbler family, named after Jared P. Kirtland, an Ohio doctor and amateur naturalist. Nearly extinct just 50 years ago, it is well on its way to recovery. It requires large areas of dense young jack pine for its breeding habitat. This habitat was historically created by wildfire, but today is primarily created through the harvest of mature jack pine, and planting of jack pine seedlings. Since the mid-19th century at least it has become a restricted-range endemic species. Almost the entire population spends the spring and summer in the northeastern Lower Peninsula of Michigan and winters in The Bahamas.
