I think your second bird is a green backed camaroptera (formerly bleating warbler). It can be approached, but stays within and around the undergrowth. It calls frequently.


Wouldn't completely rule out TF Prinia though

Don't forget to possibility of it being a warbler... There I can think of a few that fits!

I'm confused... and perhaps that's not all that surprising either... :shock:

But, to me anyway, both birds are clearly Tawny-flanked Prinias. Even although the angle on the second photo is difficult to assess properly, it still seems to be a TFP and I cannot correlate it with a Camaroptera or any other warbler for that matter. But, then again, I spend most of my time looking at seabirds and waders and try to avoid those tough LBJ's... :wall:

Just a quick reminder on how the Green-backed Cameroptera looks like! :roll:

Ja Okay, really just wanted to show off my newest addition! :P :dance:


Nice pic Lizet.

Well, I've managed to find another photograph of the bird :cam: ...... although not a good one, and it does show the back and tail - darned undergrowth gets in the way! :x

Maybe someone can get a positive ID from this one. Any help much appreciated. :thanx:

Dave

The enigmatic post from Trevor actually tells you this is a tawny-flanked prinia. With that 20/20 your new pix adds up to 100% TFP, Dave. :whistle: :lol: :lol: :lol:

While I was sorting out my photos for my TR, I came across some other unidentifieds and I have looked through my Sasol book and can't pinpoint them, so again, I am asking the experts for a bit of help.

Sorry for the quality of the photos.

Thanks

Thanks so much for all your help in IDing this bird. :gflower:

It is a first for me, or if I have actually seen it before, I didn't realise it. :dance: :dance:

I will have to go back to all the other photos of birds that I have from previous visits and try to ID them now.

You are so right Roan. Perhaps its time to invest in this new book all abt the identification of LBJ's.
I am stuck with this one. Please any takers to help me. Taken near Lower Sabie. Thanks :?

It looks like a tawny flanked prinia to me.

A non breeding black chested prinia (with the band missing) has more yellow on the chest.

In this picture you can really see why it's called a Tawny-flanked Prinia.
