How to identify

A very plain warbler with no distinguishing features (a feature in itself!). It spends a lot of its time in the cover of trees and bushes and can be more difficult to see than its relative, the Blackcap. Despite its name, it is not really a garden bird except in mature gardens next to woods. Its song is similar to that of a Blackcap, but has longer mellow phrases.
