|A Pine Warbler, Rock Cut State Park, IL; 5/8/2011.|
Pine Warblers, as you can guess nest primarily in pine trees. They are a bit larger than Yellow Warblers, and have less yellow on them. They have two white wing bars on darker wings. Although it is not very evident in the photo above, they have some olive-colored streaking on their flanks and a white belly and under the tail.
They pretty much stay exclusively in the eastern half of the country but extend south to the Gulf Coast and north into the southern regions of Ontario, Quebec, and New Brunswick.
