    ID pipit Ethiopia

    Hi, These 2 pictures are from the same bird pictured in Debre Libanos (September 2020). I think it's a pipit, but i'm not sure between tree pipit and red-throated pipit. Any idea? Thanks in advance. Yves

    Bird from Ethiopia - Borena National Park - Sighted December 2020

    A bird seen in Borena National Park (South Ethiopia) the 3rd December 2020. The guide, who is an advanced ornithologist in the park, couldn't identify it. So it could be a vagrant from a neighbouring area, or maybe an undescribed juvenile. Any lead? Thanks in advance
