Wailing Cisticola

Cisticola lais

This cisticola, with its heavily streaked back and buffy underparts is a common resident on rocky hill slopes.

I first recorded and photographed this species in May 2011 while spending a holiday at Elands Valley in Dullstroom. 

A good place (near Johannesburg) to connect with this bird is Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve.
