Hi friends
This was seen at the way from Tamboti to H7 at January 8th this year, early in the morning. It was far away, so not very good pic. I adjusted the colours and cropped it. I identified it as a Rufous-naped Lark, but I would like to know your opinion on this.

Cheers
Charbel

Given the thick bill, could it be a Croaking Cisticola?

Cheers

Charbel, the Cisticola looks like a Rattling - the most common and vocal in KNP.

I'm a bit confused about this one but my guess is a Red-capped Lark :hmz: Could anyone please confirm or correct me?
I saw the bird in Kruger on the S90 in Kruger (between Balule and Bangu) last May!

Definitely a Cisticola, and I'd guess Rattling.

Thank you pantera leo :thumbs_up: After checking my bird books again I'm sure you are right, didn't even think about a Cisticola :roll:

After a quick glance I would say Rattling Cisticola but I don't have any books with me at the moment.
