Yellow browed warbler

Phylloscopus inornatus

Description:

Early morning photograph in an area rich in bird life - prinias, barbets, drongos, babblers, tailor birds, munias, parakeets etc.. A little sleuthing around wikipedia and orientalbirdimages identified this as a Yellow Browed Warbler - perhaps a bit south of it's usual range. Thanks to User Jellis for suggesting that it could be a Goldcrest (often confused with this bird)..

Habitat:

semiurban

Notes:

Other similar birds: Goldcrest, Pallas' leaf warbler, etc

More likely to be a Hume's leaf warbler : Phylloscopus humei - see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hume's... - check out the wing bar (difference between these two species)

Never thought to look at warblers.

I would almost think this is a goldcrest but I don't see a gold crest
