Acrocephalus arundinaceus (Great Reed Warbler)

Synonyms: Acrocephalus turdoides; Turdus arundinaceus (homotypic)

Wikipedia Abstract

The great reed warbler (Acrocephalus arundinaceus) is a Eurasian passerine in the genus Acrocephalus. The genus name Acrocephalus is from Ancient Greek akros, "highest", and kephale, "head". It is possible that Naumann and Naumann thought akros meant "sharp-pointed". The specific arundinaceus is from Latin and means "like a reed", from arundo, arundinis, "reed".
