The Buff-barred Warbler is distributed from Kashmir through the Himalayas to south China and northern Indochina.

In the breeding season it is found at between 2,100 and 4,300 metres in a variety of montane forest types including rhododendron as in this case. It winters lower down in evergreen forest.

Above it is olive-brown with buffy-orange wing-bars and a yellowish supercilium. It is dull yellow below and shows white on the outer tail feathers.

There are recordings on xeno-canto and additional material is available via Avibase.
