Most populations are sedentary, but the breeding birds in Pakistan, Afghanistan and north India are migratory, wintering in peninsular India and Sri Lanka.

 

Taxonomy

Clamorous Reed Warbler (Acrocephalus stentoreus ) is an Old World warbler in the genus Acrocephalus. 

 

Habitat

This passerine bird is a species found in large reed beds, often with some bushes.

 

Behaviour

3-6 eggs are laid in a basket nest in reeds. Like most warblers, Clamorous Reed Warbler is insectivorous, but will take other small prey items.

 

Vocalisation

The song is loud and far carrying, but less raucous than Great Reed Warbler. It is a slow, chattering kereet-kereet-kereet with typically acrocephaline whistles and mimicry added.
