prinia

any bird of the large genus Prinia, belonging to the Old World warbler family, Sylviidae. Prinias are sometimes called longtail warblers or wren-warblers, from their long, graduated tails, which are carried, wrenlike, cocked up. Prinias, 10 to 15 centimetres (4 to 6 inches) long, are more strongly marked than most sylviids. They make beautifully woven purselike nests, which are suspended from twigs or attached to tall grass stalks; often the nest is sewn to the foliage
