White-throated Canary

Serinus albogularis

We first recorded this robust canary with Rousseau and Lana Lötter in November 2010, while visiting the West Coast National Park for the first time. It was relatively easy to identify in the field, given its heavy bill, white throat, and diagnostic green-yellow rump.

Our best sightings of this species, however, took place in July 2012 while we were traveling in southern Namibia. The species was abundant throughout much of the country, and proved easy to connect with.
