From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sylviidae is a family of passerine birds that was part of an assemblage known as the Old World warblers. The family was a wastebin taxon with over 400 species of bird in over 70 genera. The family was poorly defined with many characteristics shared with other families. Advances in classification, particularly helped with molecular data, have led to the splitting out of several new families from within this group. Today the smaller family Sylviidae includes the typical warblers in the genus Sylvia, the parrotbills of Asia (formerly a separate family Paradoxornithidae), a number of babblers formerly placed within the family Timaliidae (which is being split) and the wrentit, an unusual North American bird that has been a longstanding taxonomic mystery.
This bird may be considered a superspecies, divided into the western Sylvia melanocephala and Sylvia momus from the more arid regions of the Near East and adjacent Africa.

Cheerful end of the year and happy New Year!!!

Hello Jiri,
A very attractive bird that I am not familiar with. It has such an array of pretty colors and unique markings. I love it's coal black tail, cap and mask in contrast to it's white throat and mostly gray colored body. Captured in excellent detail and composed so nicely for all to enjoy viewing.
"Happy New Year"
