Olivaceous Warbler

Olivaceous Warbler can refer to one of two bird species, formerly regarded as conspecific:

The Olivaceous Warbler is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The Old World’s Olivaceous Warbler is a dapper example of how drab this shade can be, while the Olivaceous Woodcreeper of Mexico and Central and South America dazzles in silvery green and flaming rufous. North America’s most famous olivaceous avian, Vireo olivaceus is better known for the color of its eyes than that of its plumage. Plainspoken folk eschew the ostentatious olivaceous for the more modest olive. More

* Eastern Olivaceous Warbler, Hippolais pallida. It is a small passerine bird, found in dry open country, including cultivation, with bushes or some trees. 2-3 eggs are laid in a nest in low in undergrowth or a bush. Like most warblers, Eastern Olivaceous is insectivorous. It is a medium-sized warbler, more like a very pale Reed Warbler than its relative the Melodious Warbler. The adult has a plain pale brown back and whitish underparts. More

The Western Olivaceous Warbler, also known as Isabelline Warbler, (Hippolais opaca) is a "warbler", formerly placed in the Old World warblers when these were a paraphyletic wastebin taxon. It is now considered a member of the acrocephaline warblers, Acrocephalidae, in the tree warbler genus Hippolais . More

Olivaceous Warbler (Hippolais pallida) = French: Hypolaïs pâle German: Blassspötter Spanish: Zarcero Pálido Other common names: Eastern Olivaceous Warbler Taxonomy: Curruca pallida Hemprich and Ehrenberg, 1833, the River Nile, in Egypt and Nubia. Recent molecular-genetic studies suggest that this species and H. caligata, H. rama and H. opaca are closer to Acrocephalus than to current congeners and could be placed in a separate genus, Iduna. Was formerly regarded as conspecific with H. More

The Olivaceous Warbler is a small bird with an average total length of 13 cm, there is some difficulty in separating it from the larger greyer above Upcher's Warbler, but in general Olivaceous has more obvious brownish or olive tinge to the upperparts, but many individuals look just as grey as Upcher's. Upcher's tail is often waved up and down, from side to side or in circles while the Olivaceous fliks its tail up and down only. More

the record is referable to Eastern Olivaceous Warbler, the form that breeds in southeastern Europe. Following this review, only one further record of Olivaceous Warbler has been ratified as acceptable. Each of the records that were reviewed is discussed individually below.

Olivaceous Warbler Hippolais pallida - Olivaceous Warbler is a vagrant to Britain that has occurred at Portland once, on July 4th 1999. At one time there were three accepted records of Olivaceous Warbler from Portland, however after review they were all rejected - the last in May 1999. More

The Olivaceous Warbler (Hippolais pallida), is a warbler formerly considered a single species. It is now recognized as two subspecies, Western Olivaceous Warbler, Hippolais opaca, and Eastern Olivaceous Warbler, Hippolais pallida. Eastern Olivaceous Warbler breeds in south east Europe and the Middle East, and Western Olivaceous Warbler in Iberia and north Africa. Both species are migratory, wintering in sub-Saharan Africa or Arabia. These small passerine birds are found in dry open country, including cultivation, with bushes or some trees. More

Olivaceous Warbler top bird of the month. I recorded 75 species of bird in the Alcossebre area in October 2009. The top bird of the month was my first record of an Olivaceous Warbler, which turned up at the Sewage pond from the 1st to the 3rd of October. Dispite spending hours trying to get a photo of the bird for once I was unsuccessful due to the skulking nature of the bird. This brings the Alcossebre Bird List up to 206 species. More
