Wikipedia Abstract

The Basra Reed Warbler (Acrocephalus griseldis) is a "warbler" of the genus Acrocephalus. It is an endemic breeder in East and southern Iraq and Israelhttp://www. birdlife. org/news/news/2007/08/basra_israel. html in extensive beds of papyrus and reeds. It is easily mistaken for the Great Reed Warbler but is a bit smaller, has whiter under parts and has a narrower, longer and more pointed bill. It winters in East Africa. It is a very rare vagrant in Europe.
