Indian Phylloscopus warblers (II) and an old photo (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Dear all,

First, thank you for your complimentary comments about the quality of the photos in my last post.

I attach now two more Phylloscopus taken again in West Bengal a month ago, at mid altitude (1000-2000m)
My only guess for photo 1 is Hume's Leaf W, based on the single wing bar
My only guess for photo 2 is yellow-browed W

I finally attach an old photo of an acrocephalus (I find them even more complicated) which I had left in the unidentified pile... Taken in Rajahstan at spring migration time at same time as a pair of beautiful Siberian Rubythroats.

Many thanks in advance for your help, ugolino
