Abstract

Some news about the migration flyways and the wintering range of the Iberian Chiffchaff Phylloscopus ibericus. Until recently, the Iberian Chiffchaff Phylloscopus ibericus was considered a resident or short-distant migrant, but it is now well-established that it is in fact a long-distance migrant wintering in West Africa. However, the status and distribution in this region are poorly known. Confirmed field observations, captures and specimens are scarce: The majority are from Senegal, with further records from Gambia, Guinea, Mali and Burkina Faso. Southern Morocco and Mauritania are also likely to be part of the regular wintering range. The species' habitat in West Africa includes dense woodland, typically close to water, such as tamarisk stands and riverine gallery forest. Further evidence is required to establish its abundance and the precise limits of the non-breeding range.
