Basra Reed-Warbler

Acrocephalus griseldis (Hartlaub, KJG 1891)

The Basra reed warbler is a "warbler" of the genus Acrocephalus. It is an endemic breeder in East and southern Iraq, Kuwait, and Israel in extensive beds of papyrus and reeds. It is easily mistaken for the great reed warbler but is a bit smaller, has whiter under parts and has a narrower, longer and more pointed bill. It winters in East Africa. It is a very rare vagrant in Europe. The call is a gruff 'chaar', deeper than a reed warbler's. Source: Wikipedia
