Basra Reed-Warbler

Acrocephalus griseldis (Hartlaub, 1891)

The Basra Reed Warbler (Acrocephalus griseldis) is a "warbler" of the genus Acrocephalus. It is an endemic breeder in East and southern Iraq and Israel[1] 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
