A very plain leaf warbler found in a variety of wooded and scrubby habitats, often near water. Best identified by voice: the song is a slightly jerky double-noted chiff-chaff, chiff-chaff…, very different from the song of the similar Willow Warbler. Relative to Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff is often duller, more brownish overall with weaker pale eyebrow, dark legs, and tends to dip its tail habitually. Also similar to Booted and Sykes’s Warbler, but these are browner toned with darkish legs and bill.
