Saw the following bird this morning on the dirt road south of Rust de Winter dam. Unfortunately the light was bad and only got a few pics. Looks like cisticola family, but I am not even sure of that. Would appreciate any pointers.

HI there.

Visually not a lot to go on in terms of traditional features but area and habitat etc... Rattling Cisticola.

Regards,
Doug

You shouldn't rule out Neddicky here either. Do you remember if the back was marked or not?

Hi Matt/Doug

Did not get a chance to see the back - was perched relativey high up and flew off without a good view of back, but seemed a bit large for Neddicky. Realise that due to limited visual clues, ID is probably impossible.

Nevertheless, appreciate the help - I need as much practice as I can get separating into species, and if not able to do a proper ID, at least into a short list of possibilities.
