Cetti's Warbler - Cettia cetti

Pictures - John Foss

The Cetti's Warbler has a very loud and distinctive song, and is much more likely to be heard than seen. An inveterate skulker in reed beds and other dense, bushy vegetation, invariably near water, it is a rather plain bird with red-brown upperparts and grey-tinged underparts. This Warbler often holds its tail cocked. The specimens on this page were photographed in Vilamoura Reed beds.
