Forest Canary

Serinus scotops

This canary is relatively dark compared to its peers, and is heavily streaked above and below. It is also endemic to southern Africa and occurs in forest, forest edge and clearings.

We first recorded itwith David Letsoalo in April 2011 while birding in the Woodbush Forest, Magoeboskloof. Its heavily streaked breast and flanks made it easy to identify in the field.
