The Palm Warbler is not a common sight in the S.F. Bay Area. They are mostly found in the eastern half of North America where they breed in central and eastern Canada, around the Great Lakes, and northeastern U.S. They winter in southern U.S., the Caribbean, and Central America. Palm Warblers mainly eat insects and berries.

There are two variants or subspecies of Palm Warblers: the Yellow Palm Warbler and the Brown Palm Warbler. The yellow subspecies has more yellow on its body and its supercilium is yellow. Their territory overlaps, with the brown subspecies having a larger territory. They both mostly reside on the eastern half of North America. Unless specified otherwise, the below pictures are 'Brown'.
