Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Extremely shy and retiring, this drab mid-sized warbler is most easily seen in spring when males perform a simple spiralling flight song above dense reedbeds. While the actual flight component is brief and easy to miss, the dry rattling song is quite loud. Like many other members in this genus, the Marsh Grassbird is warm brown overall, with paler underparts and black streaking across its wings, back, and tail.
