A female Kirtland's Warbler (Setophaga kirtlandii) was observed and captured on 12 February 2019 at the Font Hill Nature Reserve (18°02′N, 77°57′W) on the south coast of Jamaica, hundreds of kilometers southwest of its typical nonbreeding range. This is the first report of a Kirtland's Warbler in Jamaica. The individual was resighted in the same area twice after the initial capture, spending at least 7 weeks at the study site, suggesting this bird may have been wintering in Jamaica. Overall, it is unclear if this represents the expanding range of a recently increasing Kirtland's Warbler population or simply an errant migration.
