Abstract: We observed a single White-eyed Vireo (Vireo griseus), banded a Blue-winged Warbler (Vermivora pinus), and banded a Blue-winged Warbler × Golden-winged Warbler (Vermivora chrysoptera) hybrid on Pic Paradis, St. Martin, FWI, during January of 2005. These are the first records for these species on St. Martin and the White-eyed Vireo observation constitutes the first record for this species in the Lesser Antilles.
