Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Distinctive leaf warbler with two wingbars, green upperparts often contrasting with the gray head and the striking white underparts, a distinct crown stripe, and a long pale bill. Endemic to the Indian Subcontinent. Breeds in the western and central Himalayas. Winters primarily in southern India. Only leaf warbler other than Tickell’s Leaf Warbler to regularly participate in mixed-species foraging flocks in southern India. Similar to Blyth’s Leaf Warbler, but is less yellow and can be distinguished by its paler crown, more elongated appearance, and song.
