The Pine Warbler is a common breeding bird and permanent resident in the southeastern United States. It breeds as far north as southeastern Canada and the northeastern United States, where it is migratory. It is among the earliest warblers to arrive in spring and latest to depart in fall.
This species is a permanent resident throughout most of Florida. Its numbers increase in the winter due to the influx of birds from the north. Seasonal migration peaks in September through November and again in March.
