Prinia in the Summer

In this summer, I have sighted two species of Prinia, namely the Plain Prinia (Prinia inornata) and Yellow-bellied Prinia (Prinia flaviventris), both were my lifer in Taiwan in 2010 and 2011, respectively.

The Yellow-bellied Prinia was digiscoped at Huben in Yunlin, the call of the bird is easily recognized, it sounds like a goat calling. The Plain Prinia was digiscoped at Barclay Memorial Park in Tainan, it is the most common Prinia in that park (I hope the Tainan City Government will stop destroying their natural habitat at the park). Both Prinia are the fascinating birds, always like to play and seek, hide behind or under the bushes.
