I didn't find a topic for this bird, so here's my contribution.

I saw these canaries foraging in the shrubbery alongside the Abrahamskraal hide in WCNP on 28 September 2010. While they are apparently not at all uncommon, they were a new sighting for me :dance: — and I've not seen them since :(

Thanks, okie. Yes, they are very busy little birds, but I was lucky, as they stayed foraging in the shrubs right next to the hide for some time and if you take a kazzillion pix :roll: , a few may turn out OK :wink:
