I´m unsure about this Warbler:

 

gallery_19319_1497_1823384.jpg

 

Seen in the moorlands of the Aberdares, so high altitude. Any opinions on this one?

 

Up next - God help me! :unsure::wacko::(:o:ph34r: - Cisticolas!

Well, I have dozens of Cisticola photos, but have tortured myself too long now wondering if their head is streaked or not, if their head is rufous or not, how plain their back is, how long their tail is, which of the 37 extremely similar ones they could be - quite a headache! So just the ones I am reasonably sure about, mainly those positively identified by the friendly folks on birdnet.
