Zitting (Streaked Fantail Warbler) / Buitrón
Maximum size: 11 cm
They live in marshes and flat, open-land spaces and clearings, both
in dry and wetlands with dense grazing, reed beds and irrigation, as well
as non-irrigation croplands, mainly cereal crops. They also live in lagoons
They do not put up with frosts well, neither with prolonged cold temperatures.
They are spread all over the world.
Their main threats are the loss of habitat -the conversion of meadows
into farming-land, the over-herding, reforestation or urbanising- as well
as habit-changes and procedures in agriculture such as grievous break ups,
the use of pest-control substances –pesticides, insecticides and herbicides-,
alterations in the crops and intensive agricultural greenhouse production.
