Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Brown prinia with an absurdly long tail. Breeding adult’s black throat and chest are unique. Note non-breeding adult’s pale brow stripe, plain warm brown upperparts, and pale buffy throat. Favors scrubby open areas such as clearings and forest and field edge. Inhabits hilly and montane areas; descends into foothills in the winter. Song is a repetitive series of buzzy, oddly reverberating notes. Calls are simple, and are usually buzzy or raspy-sounding.
