Description

Scientifically known as Acrocephalus bistrigiceps, Black-browed Reed Warbler is a species of bird mainly found and breeds throughout northern East Asia ranging from China, Japan, Korea, Mongolia and Russia. This warbler is known to migrate to the Malay Peninsula between October and May where it can be found in reeds and tall grass of freshwater reservoirs, ponds and wet fields. It can be seen hopping on reeds foraging for insects and occasionally appear on an exposed perch (Strange & Jeyarajasingam, 1993).

The Black-browed Reed Warbler is a small-sized bird measuring only 14 cm. This species possesses light brown upperparts and whitish underparts with no scales or streaks covering the plumage. It can be easily identified by the thick black eye-brow above the distinctive white eye-stripe (Strange & Jeyarajasingam, 1993).
