Warbler, Marsh

Unread post by wildtuinman » Thu Sep 29, 2016 10:27 am

Warblers are notoriously tough to photograph. I have spend many, many hours taking photos of them and can now say that for me personally this palearctic migrant is the toughest of the lot to photograph. It is very similar in appearance to the African Reed Warbler but shows a more steeper and rounder forehead, shorter bill and longer primaries. It also frequents a different habitat, away from reeds, in rank overgrowth thickets.
