Neddicky

Cisticola fulvicapilla

This plain-backed cisticola can be distinguished from other family members by its rufous crown, uniform tail and plain back. Eight sub-species of neddicky exist. These can be separated by their different localities, as well as their variation in breast colouration; with the northern races having a typically buff breast while the south western races having a grey one.

We first recorded this little cisticola in March 2010 while staying at the Kosi Bay Forest Lodge in northern KwaZulu Natal.
