Abstract: The Cetti's Warbler Cettia Cetti, 5.5 ins in length, has all its upper-parts dark rufous brown. It has a greyish white throat and belly while its breast and flanks are washed with light brown. Its short whitish supercilium is only conspicuous at close quarters. Instead of ┬Ěthe usual twelve tail-feathers of most passerines this species has only ten, which form a much rounded tail. The under-tail coverts are broadly tipped whitish. The wings are rounded too, and rather short.
