About the Cyprus Warbler

The Cyprus Warbler is a species of "old world" or "typical" warbler that breeds on the island of Cyprus. These small birds are migratory, spending the winter months in parts of the Middle East.

Cyprus Warblers have grey backs, black heads, white malar stripes, and heavy dark streaking on the breast. Females have similar plumage in more muted tones.
