  • Jon Hall, one of the background Warblers, recorded more songs as a side project, including one with Dominic Barnes, who plays Trent.
  • The Warblers are the only glee club other than New Directions to have an album exclusively dedicated to them.
  • Members of the Warblers are almost never seen out of their uniform, even when not at school. The only exceptions are Blaine, Kurt, and Sebastian.
  • The Warblers are known for being an a cappella group, but have been aided with instruments in Blackbird, Somewhere Only We Know and Tightrope.
  • During Season Two, it was seen that, since the Warblers didn't have a director, a council was in charge of accepting new members and choosing songs for competitions. But, in the next three seasons, this council was no longer active and a captain had those responsibilities (Sebastian in the third and fifth seasons, and Hunter in the fourth season). However, the council was reinstated between Season Five and Season Six, as it is seen in Homecoming.
  • Jane Hayward is the only female to ever perform with the Warblers.
