Leaf warblers are very small insectivorous birds belonging to the genus Phylloscopus of the Old World warbler family Sylviidae. There are about 50 species in the genus.

These are active, constantly moving, warblers always associated with trees, though normally in fairly open woodland rather than tight plantations.

Most are greenish or brownish above and off-white below. Compared to some other warbler families, their songs are very simple.

Species breeding in temperate regions are usually strongly migratory.
