L’Hypolaïs Polyglotte

The polyglot hypolaïs is found in sparse, warm and bright woods. Its song is a long, rather precipitous babble, sometimes melodious, sometimes rather squeaky, beginning with the repetition of a single note and including imitations of the calls of other species (blackbird, swallow…) hence its name « polyglot ». When he is worried, he emits a rapid succession of notes which remind a lot the cry of the Sparrow.
