This little guy was photographed in the Pilansberg reserve - looking at which Cisticolas are found out there, the lack of markings, I think it is either a Neddicky or a Lazy Cisticola. Please help with confirmation?

My "gut-feel" is a Neddicky, but these two are so difficult to tell apart... :slap:

I agree with Neddicky (also my first response when I saw the pics). Maybe the Lazy C has a longer tail, more typically held upright?
