The gray warbler (Latin Sylvia communis) belongs to the family Sylviidae from the order Passeriformes. This little songbird is smaller than a sparrow. It is easier to hear than to notice among dense vegetation.

The singing of the gray warbler is melodic and consists of several short, rapidly repeated syllables. They start out softly, but always end in a louder, high pitched tone.

The singing male constantly changes his location. Inspired by his own melody, he can fly up for a moment above the crown of a tree, and then disappear again into the thickets. It sometimes imitates the singing of other bird species.

The nondescript singer often imitates the great tit (Parus major), the black-headed goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis) or the Linnet (Carduelis cannabina).

The species was first described in 1787 by the British ornithologist John Leitham. According to various estimates, the total population size ranges from 57 to 150 million adults.


The habitat occupies the territory of Europe, with the exception of the Scandinavian Peninsula, the northern coast of Africa, Western Siberia, Asia Minor and Central Asia. The eastern border of the range runs along the shores of Lake Baikal.

Wintering takes place in Central Africa, India and the Arabian Peninsula.

Seasonal migrations take place from April to May and from August to September. During this period, birds can cover distances of up to 3000 km.

4 subspecies are known. The nominative subspecies lives in Europe, northern Africa and Turkey.

C.c. volgensis inhabits the European part of Russia, Western Siberia and the northern regions of Kazakhstan. C.c. icterops lives in the space from the central regions of Turkey to Turkmenistan and Iran. Subspecies C.c. rubicola is common in the mountains of Central Asia.

In mountainous areas, the gray warbler is found at altitudes up to 2600 m above sea level.


The gray warbler is unpretentious in choosing its place of residence. It inhabits various biotopes, avoiding too dense forests and bushy thickets. The bird can settle in treeless areas and in meadow landscapes. She feels comfortable in city parks, orchards and forest plantations.

It is characterized by a low undulating flight. Periodically, it flies up vertically. On the surface of the soil, it moves skipping in zigzag movements with a raised tail.

The diet consists of insects and other invertebrates. In late summer, autumn and during migration, various ripe berries and fruits are eaten.


Sexual maturity occurs at the age of one. The breeding season lasts from May to July. During this period, under favorable conditions, a married couple can breed offspring twice.

The cup-shaped nest is usually located in dense, thorny bushes, low above the ground.

For its construction, dry blades of grass, roots, plant fibers and leaves are used. Both spouses are engaged in construction. The female lays 4 to 6 greenish eggs with numerous brown or gray specks on the shell.

Partners incubate the clutch alternately for 12-13 days. Both parents feed the chicks. They grow very quickly and leave the nest for about 14 days.

For about a week they remain dependent on their parents. Then the chicks float on the wing and part with them.
