The typical warblers are small insectivorous birds belonging to the genus Sylvia of the Old World warbler family Sylviidae. There are about 20 species in the genus.

These are active, constantly moving, warblers usually associated with fairly open woodland, hedges or shrubs.

This is one of the few Old World warbler groups in which many of the species show sexual dimorphism, with distinctive male and female plumages. Males of some species have black on the head.
