Dusky Warbler Phylloscopus fuscatus  
Dusky Warbler
Photographer : © Raj Kamal Phukan
Location :Dibrugarh, Assam, India
Date : 20 October 2010
English synonyms:Dusky Leaf Warbler, Dusky Leaf-Warbler
Bird Family :Acrocephalinae - Tesias, Stubtails, Warblers & Tailorbirds
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :Quite common these days but stays low in the undergrowth of tea bushes. In other areas the shaking of the foliage gives away its position. However, the tea bush stems are quite thick, and hence the weight of the bird does not disturb the foliage, so it is difficult to ascertain its position. Only its call gives away the location of the bird. - RKP
