    Hi Peter,

    Looks like a Neddicky.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Dave, but pretty sure it's much bigger than a Neddicky.

    I remember this being roughly Starling sized?

    Cool, Iím pretty certain itís a Neddicky - rufous cap, grey wash below, cisticola-type tail and GISS (general impression of shape and size), but perhaps others have a different view/feel for it and can offer some other suggestions.

    Cheers,
    D

    Nice pic's Peter, shfish might be right but I dont know at what age they develop the eye ring and yellow bum fluff and juv often spotty, I dont think its a Neddicky - I thought maybe Chat ? or flycatcher but doesn't have the bristles around the mouth. Once you figure it out let us know. Look at the eye looks like a prinia eye - two tone.

    I went to Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve (in Mondeor/Southgate area) on Sunday morning - what a stunning place. Use the entrance in Peggy Vera road - thatch entrance just past Recreation Centre. It is a city parks with lots of security. You sign in and park in the car park, very well maintained. The security had dogs on leashes with them and whilst birding we came across security walking thro the reserve. River was running nicely with no litter. They open at 6. Lots of trails to walk. Did not get any new birds, but great shots of Neddicky/Widow. There is a small colony of white browed sparrow weavers / cape weavers / white fronted beaters / lots cisticolas. Nice safe place can definately recommend. Im going again this weekend

    Any help with htis was is appreciated. It is about the size of chat. Photo was taken on 2019-09-30 near Passarge Pan, CKGR, Botswana. The bird was perched in the top of a small bush in a mild wind (around 3/4 Beaufort). Sorry, this is the best I got from it.

    Btw. how can i get an "attached image" as opposed to the message filling image as above. I turned up the screenlight but still couldn't find it

    Not being familiar with sunbirds, they are quite a challenge to specify. Photographing is once as difficult. BUt his one had me eluded: in the field I thought Marico Sunbird. But at home I was doubting whether it was Shelley's Sunbird.
    What confuses me in as well Robert's app, as in Sasol's is the description of the colors (purple, maroon, red breast band), not confirming with at least some of the pictures/photo's. Looking things up on the internet only stirs more confusion.
    Can anyone help ? The photo's are bad, but they are the only ones I got. Taken at the Nambwa campsite in the Zambezi province of Namibia.
