The Lazy Cisticola's mantle is grey-brown and almost plain, and the Levaillant's Cisticola has blackish upper parts with grey or buff feather edges. If you have a picture of this bird where you can see the upper parts, the distinction between Lazy and Levaillant's should not be too difficult I think. But I am no expert, I really hope one of our experts will be able to help you pnm. :thumbs_up:

Thanks, Hilda! I will have a good look tonight. (Only tonight as we have just relocated and I am taken up doing unnecessary things like food,beds, etc instead of paying attention to birds

I have about ten photos of this bird and I cannot get ONE to load on to the forum. Under habits perhaps we should put: Shy.!
