Description: This article is in Spanish. During an inventory to assess avian biodiversity among the critical watersheds that flow into the Pacific from Nicaragua, we captured a hybrid Vermivora chrysoptera (“Golden-winged Warbler”) with V. pinus (“Blue-winged Warbler”) known as Brewster’s Warbler (V. leucobronchialis). The capture ocurred on November 30, 2007 in dry forest (elevation c. 500m above see level) approximately 25 km from Managua. To the best of our knowledge this is the first recorded sighting documented with photos and morphometric data.

Keywords: Brewster’s, chrysoptera, hybrid, leucobronchialis, Pinus, Vermivora
