A resident of damp, shady deciduous forests, the Kentucky Warbler hops on the ground on long legs, foraging in leaf litter and usually staying close to cover in dense undergrowth, although it may sing from exposed branches. It is a rather plain-looking bird with olive upperparts, bright yellow underparts all the way to the chin, dark face, yellow “spectacles” rather like some vireos, and no wingbars or tail spots; adults have a dark crown. It may suggest certain plumages of other warblers of the genus Oporornis or of Common Yellowthroat, although these should be readily separable with careful attention and a decent view.
