The Arrowhead Warblers (Dendroica pharetra) are only found on the island of Jamaica situated in the Caribbean Sea. They breed in humid montane forests, but may move down to lowland areas when not breeding. They are classified "uncommon" within their limited range.



The Arrowhead Warblers are small in size, in fact, at an average of only 0.4 oz (10.9 grams) they are similar sized to the Hummingbirds.

The plumage is mostly dark grey-brown above and white below, with two white wing bars. The head and the body are finely streaked with black.
