About the Grasshopper Warbler

The grasshopper warbler gets its name because of the high pitched, insect-like song it produces. Although when you hear one, it is often tricky to find out where it is due to the ventriloquial effect of its singing.

When seen on migration, these birds can be seen moving stealthily through the foliage, like a little mouse.
