IUCN Conservation Status: Least Concern

Brightly colored but easily overlooked. A bird of shrubland and old fields, the Blue-winged Warbler expanded its breeding grounds northward throughout the 20th century.

Raspy "bee-buzz," like an inhale and then an exhale. Also a long high buzz with twittering notes at start and finish.
