The eastern crowned warbler (Phylloscopus coronatus) is a species of Old World warbler in the family Phylloscopidae. It inhabits boreal and temperate forests and is widespread in Asia, from Russia to Vietnam.

The genus name Phylloscopus is from Ancient Greek phullon, "leaf", and skopos, "seeker" (from skopeo, "to watch"). The specific coronatus is from Latin and means "crowned".[2]

On rare occasions, vagrants have been reported from mainland Europe,[3] the UK,[4] and Scandinavia.[5]
