Cape Bunting

Emberiza capensis (near-endemic)

This cute passerine is most abundant in the western, southern and eastern Cape, but is still widespread across the country, where it occupies a wide altitudinal range and a variety of habitats.

We have seen this near-endemic in many locations, from the southern most tip of the Western Cape to south eastern Gauteng to central Namibia.
