Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

One of the largest warblers with long wings. Pale olive-gray overall with whitish underparts. Bill is long and thick with prominent pale orange-yellow lower mandible. Also note the prominent pale mid-wing panel. The tail is long and dark gray, but the tail is not as impressive as in Upcher's Warbler. Much slower-moving than the smaller Hippolais or Iduna species as it hops in bushes and trees. Breeds in thick Mediterranean scrub. During migration found in various habitats including arid zones. Song is a simple phrase of loud croaking notes. Call is a deep “Chack.”
