Remarks :This warbler has been sighted regularly at the same location. On 01/10/2017, We (Jugal Tiwari and myself) waited at the location for several hours for the bird to appear. However, we could only see a glimpse of it. Next morning, on 02/10/2017, after about 1 hour of waiting, we saw a jungle cat at that place. Immediately, the warbler came up on a small tree branch and started calling very animatedly, offering plenty of opportunity for us to see the bird. Another juvenile bird was also observed.
