Wood warblers have a distinct preference for mature woods of oak and beech, with a closely-knit canopy of leaves and sparse undergrowth, and because of this they are more common in the north and west. These large, brightly-coloured warblers spend most of their time high in the canopy, yet their domed nests are built in a natural hollow on the ground, lined with grass and hair.
