Blackcap possibly (1 Viewer)


Well-known member

My thought is this is a Eurasian Blackcap but the books I have show this bird with a black beak.

Photographed Taif, Saudi Arabia.

Besides the Ā“default speciesĀ“ rule, IĀ“ve never seen a Zitting Cisticola with that dull back.
IMHO itĀ“s a fresh juvenile Graceful Prinia, though the opinion of a local birder would be more valuable.
