Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A distinctive songbird with a long tail, often cocked to expose the diagnostic cinnamon sides. Also note the gray back, cinnamon flash in the wing, and buff belly. Juvenile has a buffy eyebrow and spotted back. Inhabits forest, edge, mangroves, and scrub in low-lying areas, often boldly perching in the open. Frequently joins mixed-species flocks. The only gray-backed, long-tailed songbird in its range in the eastern Lesser Sundas. Song is a slow, lazy human-like whistle, “pe-pe-pee-pee-pee,” notably ascending on the last three notes. Also gives a nasal “chup” note.
