Common Chiffchaff

Phylloscopus collybita

It is greenish-brown above and off-white below, it is named onomatopoeically for its simple chiff-chaff song.

When not singing, the common chiffchaff can be difficult to distinguish from other leaf warblers with greenish upperparts and whitish underparts.
