Bird Family :Acrocephalinae - Tesias, Stubtails, Warblers & Tailorbirds
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :The bird was imaged in the early morning sun and this affected the colour contrast - it is more olive-brown when seen. Grimmett, Inskipp, et al 2016 suggest that the bill should be all dark but this bird had the base of lower mandible lighter, flesh coloured. Many birds posted on OBI as Hume’s have lighter lower mandibles.
