Chiffchaff - Phylloscopus collybita

In: Common Chiffchaff Ca: Mosquiter comú Da: Gransanger De: Zilpzalp Es: Mosquitero común Fi: tiltaltti Fr: Pouillot véloce It: Luì piccolo Nl: Tjiftjaf No: Gransanger Pt: Felosa-comum Sv: Gransångare US: Chiffchaff Ru: Пеночка-теньковка

The easiest way to separate Chiffchaff from Willow Warbler is by the black legs of a Chiffchaff but this isn't always reliable. If it's really a Chiffchaff it should have relatively shorter wings, drabber underparts and a rather timid facial expression, as created by a weaker eyestripe, shorter, more rounded head and shorter bill.

Ahò, ma non te ne scappa uno: bravo.

Grazie, ciao, Emanuele

perchè per gli inglesi tutto deve essere così semplice?
il verso di un animale diventa il suo nome.
fa chif chaf? lo chiamano chif chaf.
da noi no, luì piccolo.

si chiamano nomi onomatopici. noi invece facciamo i dotti.

loro, un uccello scorreggia? lo chiamano scorreggiolo.
noi, petazzantis vulgaris!
