Similar species
The Nashville Warbler is similar to a number of other warblers. It can be identified by its white eye ring, underparts pattern (yellow from throat to breast, white belly, and yellow undertail coverts), and lack of wing bars.

In Fall, the Connecticut Warbler is similar but larger, has a heavier and less pointed bill, yellow belly and an olive wash across the breast.

Tennessee and Orange-crowned Warblers lack the eye ring instead having a pale superciliums.
