Black-backed Cisticola 111115 Cisticola eximius
This is a Black-backed Cisticola in the Mara, Kenya. This has a very restricted range in Kenya but we saw about 4 different birds..
Clements calls this the Black-necked Cisticola but the Kenyan birds have a rufous collar. HBW shows a couple of races and neither have black necks so the name remains a mystery to me.
