 Olive Warbler
The Olive Warbler (left) is a small passerine that is primarily resident in pine-oak forests of mountains from southeastern Arizona to Nicaragua.
It acts like a New World warbler — and is usually considered a New World warbler [Parulidae] — but the DNA evidence shows it to be of a distinct lineage.
It now appears that the Olive Warbler is a relict of a New World expansion of the accentors, left behind after the last Ice Age, just as the Wrentit Chamaea fasciata is a relict babbler, the only one in the New World.

The diagnostic song of Townsend's Warbler is a buzzy: "dzeer dzeer dzeer," followed by a sibilant "see-see." The buzzy, single-syllable notes at the beginning of the song are different from the remaining two warblers.

The purpose of this list of Bird Families of the World is as an aid to world birders who desire to maximize their study of avian diversity by observing examples of as many bird families as possible or reasonable within the time and money available for travel.
For example, they lumped together the New World warblers, tanagers, sparrows, icterids, flowerpiercers, Hawaiian honeycreepers, and others into a single family [Fringillidae] composed of 3 sub-families, 9 tribes, and 993 species, just because there preliminary statistics on the melting curves shown in their DNA-DNA hybridization studies were too low for their chosen "family" level.

 Old World warblers
That confusion now extends to the entire concept of an "Old World Warbler" family called "Sylviidae." Traditionally, the Old World Warblers have been considered a huge assemblage of about 400 species, making them nearly the largest family in the world, just behind the Tyrant Flycatchers of the New World (~425 species).
Then Dickinson (2003) divides Old World Warblers into four subfamilies, and among them are the 23 species of Sylvia and Parisoma that seem very likely to become babblers.
The vast majority of this slimmed-down version of Old World Warblers are in two Dickinson (2003) subfamilies: Acrocephalinae (110 species) and Phylloscopinae (91 species).
