The Common Chiffchaff, or simply the Chiffchaff, (Phylloscopus collybita) is a common and widespread leaf-warbler which breeds in open woodlands throughout northern and temperate Europe and Asia.
It is a migratory passerine which winters in southern and western Europe, southern Asia and north Africa. Greenish-brown above and off-white below, it is named onomatopoeically for its simple chiff-chaff song.
Le Pouillot véloce (Phylloscopus collybita) est une espèce de passereaux appartenant à la famille des Phylloscopidae.
Si son aspect est inconnu de beaucoup, son chant répétitif et obstiné « chiff-chaff» est l'un des plus faciles à repérer.

Wonderful capture! Even the plain birds are incredibly beautiful. I figured he was named after his song. Lots of birds are, apparently.
