    Ovenbird Identification

    The Four Keys to ID

      The Ovenbird is a chunky, larger-than-average warbler, but still smaller than a Song Sparrow. It has a round head, fairly thick bill for a warbler, and a jaunty tail often cocked upward.

      Slightly larger than a Yellow Warbler; smaller than an Eastern Bluebird.
