The article presents a study which examines the migratory connectivity in the Willow Flycatcher subspecies throughout the winter range using mitochondrial DNA sequences as well as the morphological characteristics of 68 museum specimens obtained in the winter range in Costa Rica. It notes that the findings reveal that the overlapping and distinct regions of the winter range were occupied by the four subspecies. The specific breeding of these species is connected to the winter grounds.
