Hi Paul,
Ik houd het op de Valleigraszanger, Levaillantīs Cisticola, Cisticola tinniens, vanwege, heel merkwaardig, de toch wel zwartere rug. Verder zit er bijna alleen maar verschil in geluid, en hoe hard ik ook op de foto klik, hij zegt niets.
Mooie scherpe foto met goed oogcontact.

Hi Paul,
A nice capture of this beautiful bird. Excellent composition and sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Paul,

I can not help you with the ID but the photo is very good. You have made good use of the strong light rendering many color tones in bith bird;s plumage and background. The image being very sharp it is easy to see good details of bird's body. Composition of the photo is very well done too.

Thank you for sharing,
