Correct.

Good luck with the Malachite photograph, One day one WILL sit still long enough with no branches or shadows in the way etc., and your focus and exposure will be just right and the battery charged. :cam:

Strandfontein today. Is this a plain backed pipit. Sorry, it was the only pic.

Nope! Plain-backed means exactly that: no scalloping on the back. This bird does not look like a pipit in any case. The tail is too short and the rump shows yellow. The tertials are heavily fringed pale yellow and the general impression I get from the bird's posture, the scrubby habitat and the birds interaction with the bush is weaver.

Thanks Joh, having enlarged the pic afterwards and done some more looking up, I agree with you.

Thanks.

Less than 3 months now. :thumbs_up:
