UGANDA BIRD GUIDES
The Papyrus Yellow Warbler is a large yellow warbler restricted exclusively to papyrus swamps, very scarce in southwestern Uganda.
This African bird is part the group of warblers formerly known as flycatcher-warblers. They often skulk in thick vegetation, but also perch prominently and hawk flycatcher-like after insects.
In this section of the Birding Safari Guide we share with you information about Papyrus Yellow Warblers in Uganda in order to make your Bird watching tour to Africa even more fascinating.
You will find information about:
On the African continent the Papyrus Yellow Warbler is a uncommon resident of dense papyrus beds from 900-2050 meters.
In Uganda, you're likely to find this bird in Kibaale Forest.
The Papyrus Yellow Warbler is very similar to the Mountain Yellow Warbler, about 14cm , but the mantle, wings and tail are tawny-brown, and the yellow underparts are tinged tawny on the flanks and vent.
The immature birds are washed tawny below.
You will not easily differenciate the sexes because they look alike.
The Papyrus Yellow Warbler sings infrequently, but when she sings she makes varied chips and churrs that recall a startling more than a warbler.
