Orphean Warbler Sylvia crassirostris
Skala Vasilikon, Lesvos,
07' 42.7" N 26° 13' 21.0" E 18
from an Olive grove with recently tilled ground layer.
composed of strophes (4-5/min) of six to 10 seconds with
pauses of four to five seconds between each.
consisting of a varied, melodic, low frequency (lower
pitched than Garden Warbler for example) output of both
sharp and soft, upslurred and downslurred whistles (some
Blackbird-like in tone), interspersed with wheezey,
scratchy and churring elements, all delivered at a steady
pace. Some Nightingale-like repetition.
