Description : Blyth's Reed-warbler are small birds with flattened head. They are olive brown on the upperside and whitish below. A white stipe of feathers run above their eyes. Blyth's reed warbler exhibits a distinct habitat preference compared to the reed warbler, which tends to favor reedbeds, and the marsh warbler, which thrives in dense marshy vegetation. Instead, Blyth's reed warbler selects trees or bushes as perches for its melodious songs. While primarily insectivorous like many warbler species, it also consumes various small food items, including berries.
