Hello everyone,
Happy Easter and Happy birding over the weekend.
Please can you help me ID this bird.
It was seen in Imfolozi, Zululand in December but I have not gone through the photos until now.
I thought it was a Willow Warbler but the eyebrow does not extend to well behind the ey so now I am not sure.

Any thoughts?

Hi Jo,

I'm inclined to agree with you on the Willow Warbler, but heck, I am not your authoritative warbler ID expert so hopefully someone will come to your rescue soon.

Regards,
Dave

Jo,

I'd tend to agree. Pale supercilium, feint brown eye-stripe through the eye and yellow lower bill point to Willow Warbler. The overall very drab colouration with no hint of yellow suggests that it could be of the less common sub-species [i:3adx2hs9]yakutensis[/i:3adx2hs9].
