Gray-and-gold Warbler is a distinctive warbler of western South America. Living in western Ecuador and northwestern Peru, the species forages near the ground in forest and edge habitats below 1900 meters in elevation. As the name implies, Gray-and-gold Warbler is largely gray above and yellow below with an olive back, an orange crown patch widely bordered in black, white supraloral patch, and a gray tail. The song of Gray-and-gold Warbler is a short and stuttered series of rough, musical notes.
