The Wood warbler is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The Wood Warbler Phylloscopus sibilatrix is a common and widespread leaf warbler which breeds throughout northern and temperate Europe, and just into the extreme west of Asia in the southern Ural Mountains. This "warbler" is strongly migratory and the entire population winters in tropical Africa. More

The wood warbler family (Parulidae) was once, and occasionally still is, split into two subfamilies. The "wood warblers proper" (Parulinae) includes about 26 genera and 116 species, and are most numerous in North America. The "bananaquits" (Coerebinae) has one species, which is common in the Caribbean. Many classifications, including the one currently in use by the American Ornithologists' Union (AOU), now place that species in its own family, the Coerebidae. More

The Wood Warbler is 11–12.5 cm long, and a typical leaf warbler in appearance, green above and white below with a lemon-yellow breast. It can be distinguished from similar species, like the Chiffchaff P. collybita and the Willow Warbler, P. trochilus by its yellow supercilium, throat and upper breast, pale tertial edges, longer primary projection, and by its shorter but broader tail. It is a summer visitor to the United Kingdom, seen from April until August. More

genus of wood warblers; this chiefly North American genus has 27 species, most of which have contrasting plumage, such as the black, white, and yellow of the myrtle warbler (D. coronata). A common but less-striking species is the blackpoll warbler (D. striata). Some authors merge Dendroica in Vermivora, a less-colourful genus of 11 species, most of them well known in the United States. More

The Wood Warbler Phylloscopus sibilatrix is a scarce bird in Cheshire, having declined greatly in the last decade or so. Breeding Bird Survey results from the BTO (British Trust for Ornithology) show that the UK population dropped by 52% from 1994 to 2004, for unknown reasons, and it is now on the Amber List of species of conservation concern. Wood Warbler is much less common than the other two Phylloscopus warblers breeding in Britain - Willow Warbler P. trochilus and Chiffchaff P. More

commonly encountered Wood Warblers at Hilton Pond Center, with 381 banded since 1982. (AMRE are exceeded only by Magnolia Warblers at 397 and the ever-so-common wintering Yellow-rumped Warblers at a whopping 2,045.) The majority of our American Redstart captures (65%) come in spring. More

The Wood Warbler is perhaps my most favourite of the spring migrants to Scotland. It usually arrives in the east Loch Lomond oak woods late in April though in recent years its arrival date has been becoming earlier. My other regular place to find them is in the Pass of Leny near Callander.It is an active little bird which is always on the move through the trees. It has two distinct songs; one is a whooping flutey call and the other is the characteristic dry,rattling trill. More

The attractive but unobtrusive wood warbler is the largest Phylloscopus warbler in Europe. It has bright yellow upper parts, throat and upper chest and white under parts. The species is widespread and numerous in deciduous forest in Europe and reaches its highest densities in the UK in the western oak woods of Wales. Where to see them Wood warblers are found in deciduous woodland under closed canopies where there is little or no shrub layer. More
