Juvenile Black-chested Prinia

Postby Doug » Fri Jan 20, 2012 6:11 am

From Brian Culver.

Identification was confirmed by this youngster being fed by adult Black-chested Prinia.

What is interesting is the markings being so similar to an adult Tawny-flanked Prinia. It has a rufous wing panel and a tawny wash on the flanks etc.

Nice photo.

I agree very similar. Only noticeable difference is the tail length.

Interesting theory Andy.

I must go and check my Roberts VII this evening to see the measurements. If there is no overlap that's quite a nice one.

Hi Doug, whilst you're at it, change the topic heading to correct the "Chested" typo...
