Arid, bushy hillsides with scattered trees is the preferred habitat of the Virginia\s Warbler. A peculiar habit of wagging its tail up and down is a good identification clue. Its food is exclusively insects gleaned from leaves or occasionally hawked from the air. The nest is hidden at the base of a low bush and made of grass and bark strips.'

The four-digit banding code is VIWA.
