The Sardinian Warbler (Sylvia melanocephala) is a small species of songbird common in the Mediterranean region. This species is common throughout a range of habitats including coastal scrub, forests, farmland and gardens.

The song of the Sardinian Warbler is a series of scratchy, melodic chattered phrases and is a common sound throughout much of its range. They also make a range of harsher calls with repeated ‘tchra’ notes. This species often sings while perched on top of a bush or in a display flight.

The audio in the video below was recorded in spring in Los Alcornocales Natural Park, Andalucia, Spain. The common name for this species in Spanish is Curruca cabecinegra.
