1. Bird(Common Noun) The Zitting Cisticola, Cisticola juncidis, is an Old World warbler in the genus Cisticola. This genus is sometimes split off with various other southern warbler genera and given family status as the Cisticolidae. This species was previously known as Fan-tailed Warbler , but the current name gives consistency with the many tropical cisticola species. It is also found in Assam, particularly in Dibru-Saikhowa National Park.
