A terrific picture this one JJ... you're so lucky to get to see these. Hoped I'd got one in Australia, but it was something else!!!

Many thanks for showing him to us my friend.
 
Terrific picture of this handsome Zitting Cisticola. Fabulous pose, perch, lighting, setting, colors, and composition. Superb JJ! TFS!

They're an odd little warbler (not that I've seen one), short-tailed and podgy, Collins says, and the videos confirm they can look just a little like a chat. This is a great shot, and I like how it seems to be looking at you with a “sceptical” expression ;)!
