The Pine Warbler, Dendroica pinus, is a small songbird of the New World warbler family.
These birds have a white belly, white wing bars, dark legs and a thin, relatively long pointed bill; they have a yellowish line over the eye. Adult males have olive upperparts and a bright yellow throat and breast; in females and immature, the upperparts are olive-brown and the throat and breast are paler.
Their breeding habitat is open pine woods in eastern North America. The nest is a deep open cup placed near the end of a tree branch, usually a pine.
These birds are permanent residents in southern Florida. Other birds migrate to northeastern Mexico and islands in the Caribbean.
They forage slowly on tree trunks and branches, poking their bill into pine cones, also searching for food on the ground. These birds mainly eat insects, seeds and berries.
The song of this bird is a musical trill. The call is a slurred chip.
