Genus UROSPHENA

The genus Urosphena contains one Indian Warbler, instantly recognizable by its short tail, which is only half as long as the wing, and by the graduation of the tail-feathers, which causes the tail, when expanded, to be fan-shaped, quite as much so as in Cisticola.

This Reed-Warbler, about the habits of which very little is known, is a very rare visitor to Burma.
