Grauer's Warbler (Graueria vittata)
An enigmatic little bird, Grauer's Warbler (Graueria vittata) is fairly common understory warbler in montane forests in the Albertine Rift. Like a few other strange Albertine Rift endemics, like Congo Bay Owl Phodilus prigoninei and Grauer's Broadbill Pseudocalyptomena graueri, it's closest relatives are probably Asian.
