The blue-winged warbler is a fairly common New World warbler. It breeds in eastern North America in southern Ontario and the eastern United States. Its range is extending northwards, where it is replacing the very closely related golden-winged warbler. Diet consists of insects, and spiders. Blue-winged warblers nest on the ground or low in a bush, laying four to seven eggs in a cup nest. The females incubate the eggs for 10 to 11 days. The young fledge in 8 to 10 days. They winter in southern Central America.
