Whitethroat

Curruca communis

1

Typically discovered in open, scrubby environments such as coastal heaths, woodlands, and hedges, this bird can also be found in bramble thickets on neglected terrain. It tends to be shy like other warblers but attracts notice with its erratic climbing display flights. The bird sings a burbling, buzzing song from a resting spot and frequently produces a rising, sparrow-like "weet, weet" call. Its plumage is primarily brownish with vivid rusty wings; its grayer head features a narrow whitish eyering that complements the white throat, giving it a slightly puffy appearance.
