Yellow-browed Warbler (Phylloscopus inornatus Blyth) – a new species for Crimean avifauna

M. V. Banik, T. N. Devyatko

A thorough revision showed that a specimen of the small warbler taken by A.S. Lysetsky on 1.11.1957 in Crimea was mistakenly identified as Greenish Warbler (Phylloscopus trochiloides) and hence reported in major sources on Crimean avifauna (Kostin, 1983; Kostin, 2006). Inspection of plumage & structure traits irrefutably evidenced that this bird is indeed Yellow-browed Warbler (Phylloscopus inornatus). This is the first and only indication that Yellow-browed Warbler should be included in the list of Crimean birds.
