Brown Woodland Warbler

The Brown Woodland-Warbler is a species of Old World warbler in the Sylviidae family. It is found in Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Yemen. Its natural habitats are boreal forests, subtropical or tropical moist montanes, and subtropical or tropical dry shrubland.

The Brown Woodland 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 Brown Woodland Warbler is one of the most vocal birds in the forest and will sing at any time of the day, sounding somewhere in between a Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff. Plumage is green-brown with a vivid yellowish wing panel. The African Paradise Flycatcher is, without doubt, the most impressive bird of the forest. Again, it is often highly vocal and, once the call is known, pairs or groups can be located easily, usually beneath the canopy along drainage lines and stream valleys. More
