Winter Plain Prinia

We have had a temporary burst of spring weather and birds are taking advantage. This plain prinia (Prinia inornata, 褐头鹪莺) was one of a flock of four that was foraging by the Xiang River. Their clicking sound travels far but the birds themselves often remain obscure, camouflaged in heaps of leafs and desiccated winter reeds.
