The Dusky Warbler is similar in size ( 10 – 12 cm long) and shape to a Chiffchaff. The adult has an unstreaked brown back and buff underparts. There is a prominent whitish supercilium, and the bill is fine and pointed. The sexes are identical, as with most warblers, but young birds are more olive-tinged above.

Habitat and Distribution

The Dusky Warbler is a leaf warbler which breeds in east Asia. It is strongly migratory and winters in southeast Asia and Great Britain. It sometimes occurs in North America in Alaska, and has also occurred in California. It is abundant in taiga bogs and wet meadows.


It is insectivorous, but will take other small food items, including berries.


The nest is built low in a bush, and 5-6 eggs are laid.
