Swamp Grass-babbler, Swamp Prinia
Laticilla cinerascens by Linda Sutton(8 in. x 8 in. | transparent watercolor | ID#3908)
Family: PELLORNEIDAE | Conservation Status: Endangered | Population Trend: decreasing
Loss of habitat in a limited range in the flood plains of NE India makes this relatively large, long tailed Prinia very rare. On the south bank of the Dibru river an undisturbed grassland was restored for them after being burned for agriculture, but the species did not return.
