Size: 10-12 cm
Area: Widespread Resident, mainly in North and North-West
Habitat: Wet Areas with Tall Grasslands, Waterside Reedbeds and Scrubland
Description: A rather lesser seen species.
The upper-body is sandy-brown and the underparts, like most other Prinias, is plain-white. The iris is deep-red and the bill is pale overall.
Like its cousins, this one also is a restless forager (maybe a little less restless), foraging in low and dense vegetation.
Both the sexes are similar. Mostly found solitary or in pairs.
Food: The usual Prinia diet – Insects.
Call: Since, like most of its cousins, this one is also more often heard than seen, its call is the best guarantee of its presence. The calls include a trilling breep or a trrrt…trrrt…trrrrrr.
