Finally got a photo of a Cetti's Warbler

  • After nearly a year of trying I finally got a couple of photo's of the elusive and loud little Cetti's Warbler

     

    That topped a Great week for me!!!

  • Sorry forgot to mention it was in front of Island Mere Hide

  • What lovely pics of a lovely  little bird. They have a look of a Wren , are they related ?

  • lovely pics. its a great feeling when you finally get that shot!!!

  • Great shots of a very VERY skulking bird. I was over the moon when I finally managed to photograph one on my local patch in 2010 - sadly they disappeared during the cold winter.

    Galatas, they are quite Wren-like in behaviour and lifestyle, and I guess the similar appearance thing is down to some convergent evolution as they are not closely related. The wren family (Troglodytidae) is mainly American with only one species making it to Eurasia, while the family to which Cetti's Warbler belongs (Cettiidae) is mainly concentrated in Africa and Asia.
