Unusual bird sighting

Unread postby Stroppie » Sun Mar 29, 2015 9:26 pm

Earlier today Sunday, 29 March 2015 we have spotted a small, white bird with light brown markings on its upper feathers. We spotted this bird near the Matjulu waterhole outside of Berg-en-Dal in the Kruger National Park. I did not manage to upload a picture file to this page but if you are interested I could email it to you directly. Regards Stroppie

Here is the bird that Stroppie wants an ID on, and which I have sent to Johan van Rensburg:

Very interesting! Any other photos of it?

It seems leucistic and the GISS is that of a warbler or flycatcher.... Would love to see more photos of it.
