Cinnamon-breasted Warbler


I had very low expectations of seeing this bird in June 2012 while visiting the Karoo National Park. Thanks to Jaapie Claassen and his wife, however, we easily located this “special” while birding along the Molteno Pass (just outside the Karoo National Park). It gave excellent views (be it at a distance) before being chased off by a rock kestrel. What an awesome experience!
