Namibia


marsh warbler

Birds of Namibia

Introduction: Marsh warblers (Acrocephalus palustris) can be observed in patches of tall grass and in garden hedges, as well as in woodland cover with herbaceous and tangled vegetation and undergrowth. These habitats make them difficult to observe, although their rich and lively song might give a more exact location away.

Distribution: Most recordings of this species have been confined to the far-eastern reaches of the Zambezi Region (formerly the Caprivi Strip), although there have been some sightings in and around Windhoek and as far north as the Kunene River east of Epupa Falls.

Diet: Gleans insects and spiders, snails and berries from gleaning branches and twigs.

Description: Plain green olive upper parts, with a yellowish-brown rump. Flight feathers are dark grey and the underparts are buffy white.

Breeding: Extralimital.

Size: 12cm. Weight: 12g.
