Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large, plain, long-tailed cisticola. Note the pale eye stripe, which is lacking in most similarly plain cisticolas. Varies geographically: the crown can be rufous or brown, and the underparts buffy or gray. Found on rocky slopes in grassland and savanna. Often cocks up the tail like a wren or prinia. Calls include squeaks, bleats, and dry rattles. As with all cisticolas, habitat and voice are important cues in identification.
