Can you please tell us where and when you saw these two birds? That will help a good deal with any IDs.

I would go with Levaillant's Cisticola on the second bird.

This one I am not sure, do you have more photos of another angle of the bird. I lean towards Levaillant's Cisticola at the moment.

Hi all,

After reading through this thread, I've realised I have photographed most of my birds from the wrong side :redface: :doh:

I hope you can still help me with this one - are they Levaillant's Cisticolas? - This was taken from Rondevlei bird hide towards the end of May this year.

Thanks!

Hi all, I have trouble to ID a few birds. The pictures were taken at Rietvlei Dam Nature Reserve. May I please post it here for help.

Have a nice weekend.
