Soukous birds in 2016

I had hoped to start 2016 with a bang but on my first safari the weather was so wet and overcast that all the birds which are usually so colourful just looked like featureless blobs.

 

Anyway, here goes

1 per post, as that seems to be the preferred format

 

Levaillant's Cisticola

Great that you have started- and lovely pictures. I probably should have paid more attention, but where was this safari?

The ground woodpecker image is especially nice.

Was it possibly photographed somewhere in South Africa?

I like the plumage details.

Thank you for posting in this section.
