Come birding with me

A short series of buzzing calls comes from a nearby bush, and we move closer. I recognize it, but remain quiet. I know that some Ashanti people of Ghana call it a ‘Dwe-dwe’, and I am curious if it is the same here. But the Tawny-flanked Prinia apparently has no local name here because when it pokes it’s head out of the bushes for a photo op, my companion does not recognize it. I try to take a picture of the bird, quickly before it takes off, to perch for a few seconds on another branch, and another, and another. Warbers, am I right?
