The common name refers to the bluish-gray color of the wings that contrast with the bright yellow body of the male. Blue-winged Warbler’s main song is a wheezy “beee-bzzz”, the second note lower. Their alternate song is longer and more complex, consisting of buzzy notes followed by a variable number of short musical notes. Also a long high buzz with twittering notes at start and finish. It also utters a sharp “tisk” call note.
