I am definitely not familiar with all the possible ssp of the Lesser Whitethroat complex here in the UAE (I am from Switzerland).
Could you share your ideas about this bird?
Very uniform on neck/back; rather extensive white on the outer tail feathers.
It gave me a hard time to take some pics, but that's built in the LW's, of course.
Thanks for your help.
Of course, I share my observations around the Jebel Ali Hotel on ebird.
Thanks a lot for your comment, Andrew! Much appreciated.
Definitely a difficult field of ID.
Most likely to be halimodendri, followed by blythi, but I don't know how to tell them apart in the field except on call.
