Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A very pale, slim, long-tailed warbler of dry country. Pale gray-brown on the upperparts and white below, though immatures can show a buff wash. The tail is frequently cocked up. Found in dry thorn savanna and thornscrub, usually in pairs. Similar in appearance to Tawny-flanked Prinia, but found in drier habitat, and is paler and grayer on the back with no rufous on the flanks. The main vocalization is a series of dry, high-pitched “zhep” notes delivered in fast succession, similar to the song of Tawny-flanked Prinia, but faster and higher-pitched.
