We can ID this warbler as an Ovenbird by its olive upperparts, white underparts heavily streaked with black, white eyering and a line of orange feathers running along the top of head bordered on each side by blackish-brown stripes. The eyes are dark, the upper mandible of the bill is dark, the lower mandible is horn-colored and the bill is pointed. The Ovenbird's legs and feet are pink.
The Ovenbird gets its name from the shape of it's nest, which has a dome shape and side entrance that make it resemble a Dutch oven.
