Cinnamon-breasted Bunting

Emberiza tahapisi

This exquisite, dark-coloured bunting is a common resident and partial migrant on rocky slopes in grassland and open woodland.

We first recorded this beautiful bunting in October 2010 while driving along the “Zaagkuildrift to Kgomo Kgomo” birding route in the North West Province. In Gauteng, Rust de Winter Dam Nature Reserve, the Seringveld Conservancy and Roodeplaat Dam Nature Reserve are good spots for this species.
