Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

This misleadingly-named bird is not really a prinia, but a specialized ground babbler. Restricted to lowland grassy riverine plains, where it typically stays low in the vegetation in small flocks, flushing only reluctantly. If seen, note very long tail, white throat, and streaking all over the body. Shy and difficult to see; more readily detected by its bubby, warbling song.
