Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small songbird, virtually identical in plumage to Pale-legged Leaf Warbler, of which it was formerly considered a subspecies. Vertical tail pumping distinguishes this species from most others in its range except Pale-legged. Forages through the different layers of forest and like Pale-legged (and unlike most other leaf warblers) sometimes forages on the ground. Call note is a hard metallic “pit,” similar to Pale-legged; song a series of rhythmic whistles with clear distinctions between each note, very unlike the high, rapid trill of Pale-legged.
