Sakhalin Leaf Warbler in Hakodate. This is one of the 3  Phylloscopus species present in south Hokkaido in summer. It has a weird song, like a creaky bicycle that needs some oil. The other small leaf warblers are the abundant Eastern Crowned and the not quite as common Arctic Warbler. This species is probably the scarcest of the 3.
