Blackbird/warbler group is an informal grouping of Phaenicophilidae, incertae sedis genera: Teretistris and Zeledonia, Icteridae and Parulidae.[1] It is used to show the relationships between other nine-primaried oscines.

Description

Remarkably diverse, New World warblers are a group of small, insectivorous birds known for their colourful plumage and behavioural variation. Icterids are a diverse family of passerines exclusive to the New World, not unlike the warblers. The Teretistris are endemic to Cuba, while the Wrenthrush is found from Costa Rica to Panama.
