Western Orphean Warbler
15 cm (6 in)
Females and immatures have a paler head and buff underparts, grey back with a brownish tinge. The iris is dark in young birds.
This species was formerly lumped with Eastern Orphean Warbler to Orphean Warbler.
Formerly regarded as monotypic. Now two subspecies are recognized:
They are normally found in various open and semi-open woodland with bushy cover.
Monogamous. Both adults construct the nest in a bush or tree. Their clutch contains 4-6 eggs.
The diet consists mostly of arthropods, particularly insects, such as spiders, and their larvae. After the breeding season they add berries to their diet.
