The Oriente warbler (Teretistris fornsi) is a species of bird in the Cuban warbler family, Teretistridae, that is endemic to Cuba. Its natural habitats dry forests, lowland moist forests, montane moist forests, and xeric shrublands. As its common name implies, the Oriente warbler is found in Cuba's east; it is the sister species to its fellow Cuban endemic, the Yellow-headed warbler, found in extreme western Cuba.
This species measures 13 cm (5.1 in) long. Upperparts are uniformly medium-grey. Underparts are mostly yellow, with a light grey belly. A whitish eye ring and slightly decurved bill are distinctive traits.
Feeds on insects, spiders and small lizards.
