The problem with the chiffchaff is it looks very like our own common chiffchaff, so it is hard to be sure that this is the real McCoy.
Most species that belonged to this guild, such as the Red-breasted Flycatcher (Ficedula parva), Eurasian Nuthatch, Eurasian Golden Oriole (Oriolus oriolus), Common Cuckoo (Cuculus canorus), and Common Chiffchaff (Phylloscopus collybita), were seen in the entire forest.
In Common Chiffchaffs (Phylloscopus collybita), males sing at low rates both at dawn and later in the morning during the pre-fertile period compared to later in the breeding season (Rodrigues 1996).
