Damara Rockrunner

Achaetops pycnopygius

This  striking (macrosphenid) warbler is a near-endemic resident on boulder-strewn, grassy hillsides and the bases of small hills.

To see it in southern Africa you have to travel to central or northern Namibia. We did this in July 2012 and were rewarded with a number of awesome sightings of this melodic bird; first at Grootberg, then at the Waterberg Plateau. then at Daan Viljoen Game Reserve and finally at Erongo Wilderness Camp.
