Hi everyone,
This was taken at Golden Gate but I am confused between Cinnamon-breasted and Cape Bunting.
The chest does not look cinnamon or pale so I am not sure?




Kind regards
Jo

Hi Josey, this to me is a Cape Bunting.

Here you can compare it with Cinnamon-breasted Bunting which shows a much more buffy-brown and not grey breast. The grey back and mantle is also a good indicator for Cape bunting.

Hi Josey,

I agree with WTM. Also the fact that the throat is pale. A Cinnamon-breasted would have a dark throat.

Cheers,
Gordon
