Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

An unusual warbler with a long bill and pale eyes. Dull brownish overall with slightly paler underparts. Found in humid forest at low and middle elevations, mainly in dense tangles at middle levels, usually in pairs or small groups. Similar in appearance to some greenbuls, but has a shorter tail and a longer bill. Most often detected by the distinctive song: a chirpy phrase of 3-5 whistles in an up-and-down pattern, usually repeated after a pause. The quality of the notes is reminiscent of a bulbul.
