Levaillant's Cisticola

  

This is a Tinkling Cisticola also known as a Levaillant's Cisticola, (Cisticola tinniens), Hermanus, Western Cape, South Africa.

 

Shot this at the vlei Sat morning.

 

Thanks Francois for the ID confirmation ...

 

"CJA Photo,

 

Only 3 Cisticolas occure in part of the Western Cape namely Zitting, Levaillant's and Grey-backed (and Nedidicky (NEDDICKY) which appears with the Cisticolas in the field guides).

 

I am sure yours is a Levaillant's Cisticola.

 

Great shot by the way"

 

Also Hedri for the ID
