Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Very small Sylvia warbler of sandy desert with scattered low shrubs. Plumage is a pale warm buff-brown overall; warmer than the closely-related Asian Desert Warbler that has more prominently-patterned tertials. Note the deep rusty-colored tail, yellow eyes, and yellowish legs. Often forages on the ground, sometimes following wheatears. Song a short sequence of rattles and a flutey note. Call a low "trrrrr."
