Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A dull and poorly-marked prinia of open dry forest, shrubby grasslands, and forest or agricultural edges. Can be retiring and difficult to see in dense vegetation; listen for its song, a far-carrying and bright series of notes: “ts’YEEP! ts’YEEP! ts’YEEP! ts’YEEP!”. Light brown with faintly marked upperparts and a long, graduated tail. Lacks any bright colors or contrasting head markings such as in Yellow-bellied, Striated, and Hill Prinias.
