Victorin’s Warbler

Cryptillas victorini (endemic)

I recorded this notorious skulker with Gordon Botha in November 2011 while looking for Cape Rockjumper at Rooi Els, Western Cape. We missed seeing the rockjumper but had good views of this colourful warbler. Unfortunately given the thickness of the mountain fynbos and the bird’s desire to move around a lot, I will have to go back for better photographs (as well as the rockjumper).
