Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A hulking warbler that resembles Eurasian Reed-Warbler in coloration but far larger with a proportionately more massive head, heavy bill with a dark tip, and a broad, pale eyebrow. Breeds in reed beds, crashing through the reeds in short flights and bending stems when perched. Song short but very loud and memorable with repeated phrases of "karra-karra-karra gurk gurk gurk chirrr-chirrr karra karra." Call a high-pitched “krrrrr."
