The Cyprus Warbler is a small species of warbler that lives on the island of Cyprus during breeding season, and in Israel, Jordan or Egypt during the winter months. Male Cyprus Warblers, like our Birdorable version, have black heads, grey backs, and dark streaking on the breast. Females are similar in color scheme though the brightness is toned down considerably.
