The Graceful Prinia,Prinia gracilis, is a small warbler (in some older works it is referred to as Graceful Warbler). This prinia is a resident breeder in northeast Africa and southwest Asia from Egypt and Somalia east to north India, where it is sometimes called Streaked Wren-Warbler.[2]

This active passerine bird is typically found in shrub or tall grass in a variety of habitats with thick undergrowth, tamarisks or similar cover. Graceful Prinia builds its nest in a bush or grass and lays 3-5 eggs.

These 10-11 cm long warblers have short rounded wings, and a long tapering tail with each feather tipped with black and white. In breeding plumage, adults are grey-brown above, with dark streaking. The underparts are whitish with buff flanks, and the bill is short and black.

The sexes are similar. In winter, adults are brighter sandy brown above with weaker streaking, there is more buff on the sides, and the bill is paler.

There are 12 subspecies, of which P. g. akyildizi, of southern Turkey is the darkest, brownest, and most heavily streaked above, and has the brightest buff flanks.

The long tail is often cocked, and the flight of this species is weak. Like most warblers, Graceful Prinia is insectivorous. The call is a rolling trilled breep, and the song is a hard rolling repletion of zerlip.

Great catch of this quick bird, and nice details. I wonder if you got it in the wild, because in the urban areas she usually hides quite well.

Wonderful exposure and detail. The lighting is great and the colours of the bird stand out beautifully against the green grass and shallow DOF background.

Merhaba Hüseyin,
Superb close portait of a Graceful Prinia in a great pose and from an excellent POV against a fine neutral natural BG. A marvellous composition too.
This image is excellent in all respects and I am taking it as a favourite.

Hello Huseyin,
Excellent close-up of this pretty bird in a lovely pose. I like its pose in the pleasant light. Great focus on the eye, sharp details and beautiful natural colours. A very fine composition too.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Oy oy oy sevsinler bunu Sevgili Hüseyin :)Çok küçücük bir kuş olduğu yaprağın taşımasından belli.Öyle zarif ve şirin durup, sana nağmeler söyleyerek vermiş pozunu.Ben bu şarkıyı biliyor gibiyim.Parlak ve capcanlı gözlerle bakmış.Üstelik dengeli ve sağlam durmasını bilen bir kuş.Yine usatlığını göstermişsin.Her kareni hayranlıkla izliyorum.Sen bir harikasın,görüşmek üzere :))
