Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Relatively colorful, mid-sized, long-tailed cisticola of wetlands. Note the heavily streaked back and rump, and rufous in the cap, wing, and tail. Found in and adjacent to dense wetland habitats. Distinctive song is an introductory “chip” note or two followed by a quick, warbled jumble. Similar to Winding Cisticola, but Levaillant’s has a rufous tail and a streaked rump. Relatively bold colors separate the two from other cisticolas.
