Hi everybody. Happy New Year to all the mites. Hope it's a great one for birding and just in general.

Could anybody please help with some ID's. All 3 birds seen in the Dullstroom area over December.

Thanks!

I thought this was Dark-Capped Yellow Warbler but now I am not so sure. I haven't any photos of the back unfortunately. He was very far away too. Seen at Sani Pass Hotel along the river.


Help please.

No need to doubt yourself. It's a warbler, it's yellow and it's got a dark cap! Besides, it's the only yellow(ish) warbler in this streamside vegetation in grassland. Willow & Icterine Warbler are bushveld birds and Yellow-throated Woodland-Warbler is a forest bird.
