Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Warm brown babbler with a distinctive round-headed and short-billed profile. Extremely localized, restricted to disappearing patches of tall riverine grassland and reedbeds. Usually in pairs or small groups. Shy and skulking, typically best detected by its fluty, melodic song, but if seen well, note its gray face, pale throat, and golden “spectacles.”
