Greybacked Finchlark

Unread post by arks » Fri May 14, 2010 1:27 am

I didn't find a topic for these little birds, so here's my contribution. I find them VERY hard to photograph indeed, they are very busy little birds. The female did pose quite nicely, along the verge of the dune road from Twee Rivieren to the Auob, but the male was far more elusive. Both birds were seen in Kgalagadi on 20 February 2010.
