Hi all.

Gordon and I saw this bird in Kruger National Park. We were not sure at first what it was, but eventually the verdict was Tawnyflanked Prinia, and probably a juvenile with such a yellow heavy bill.
Just thought you might like to see just what a TFP can look like.

It has a look of an Icterine Warbler.

Hi Chris.....
Please don't stir up that argument again... lol

It was with a group of TFP and the side on shot shows the very long tail.
We did think a strange warbler at the time but the concensus was 100% TFP.

Regards.
Doug

Point taken.
Just shows the dangers of basing an ID on a single photograph.
