The hooded warbler is a New World warbler. It breeds in eastern North America and across the eastern United States and into southernmost Canada . It is migratory, wintering in Central America and the West Indies. Hooded warblers are very rare vagrants to western Europe. Recent genetic research has suggested that the type species of Wilsonia and of Setophaga are closely related and should be merged into the same genus. As the name Setophaga takes priority over Wilsonia, hooded warbler would then be transferred as Setophaga citrina. This change has been accepted by the North American Classification Committee of the American Ornithologists' Union, and the IOC World Bird List. The South American Classification Committee continues to list the bird in the genus Wilsonia.
