Warbler, Victorin's

Unread postby francoisd » Wed Aug 25, 2010 3:35 pm

A very frustrating bird for me to tick on my life list. Have heard it many times before but never got to see it but things changed on Sunday during terrible Cape weather at Rooiels when I heard this one in a shrub, looked into the shrub and he looked back at me and then gave me the opportunity to tack a photo.

As far as SANParks are concerned I see it listed on the Tsitsikamma page

Now there's a target bird! Not sure when I'll be in the Cape though. Nice shot, Francois!

Not only is the bird rare but the composition of the shot
is impressing.
It cannot be made more or less for that matter but it can be altered to suit.- The universe.
