This morning although the weather was dull and foggy, I went to Al-Abraq to record the call of the Hume’s Leaf Warbler just to make sure that the ID is correct.
There were at least two Hume’s Leaf Warblers or even more, there seems to be one on every tree but as they move from one tree to another one can not be sure he is seeing different birds. But as I was photographing one there was another calling from behind so they are two or even more. The bird photographed today is different from that of two days ago as the wing bar of today’s bird is more worn.
