We have seen these flitting around the complex and actually saw a few them in our garden a while ago but they are always so darn fast.

At last I saw one in our Geranium plant so I grabbed the camera and just took this shot through the kitchen window. Not a very good photo but a new one to add to my collection of garden birds.

Kalahari Scrub-robin.

Great catch, stf! :-) Although I believe this to be a tawny-flanked prinia. :-?

I think that i agree with Mel. The colours do not seem right for the kalahari Scrub-Robin and the black end of the tail is missing and it has a red eye. Nice one anyhow \O

Lots of mousebirds at the nectar feeder yesterday. ;-)

The Crested Barbets and Black-collared Barbets have been taking turns at making the hole into the nesting log, but the hole is too small for the Crested Barbets! lol
