[quote="Rusty Justy"]joshilewis, your bird looks like Rattling Cisticola. Great, thanks.
Thanks for the help.

It might just be me, but I don't think the cisticola looks like that in the book :P Why don't they show the undertail in the book (I use the Sasol)? I imagine the barred under tail is quite diagnostic?

Any chance this could be a Tawny-flanked Prinia?
or am I taking a flyer!
Thanks

Hi Elsa - the streaky back and the fact it is in the top of a tree shouting its head off tends to make me think more along the lines of Rattling Cisticola. I assume this is in the Kruger? They are very common there.

Cheers

Niall.

Tilandi,

Your bird looks like a Rattling Cisticola.
