p.1 #1 · Streaked Fantail Warbler (Cisticola juncidis)



Streaked Fantail Warbler (Cisticola juncidis) by alabang, on Flickr

The Zitting Cisticola or Streaked Fantail Warbler (Cisticola juncidis), is widely distributed Old World warbler whose breeding range includes southern Europe, Africa (outside the deserts and rainforest), and southern Asia down to northern Australia. A small bird found mainly in grasslands, it is best identified by its rufous rump, lacks any gold on the collar and the brownish tail is tipped with white. During the breeding season, males have a zigzagging flight display accompanied by regular "zitting" calls that has been likened to repeated snips of a scissor. They build their pouch nest suspended within a clump of grass.

THank you KCollett, Don and Karl.

A bit of a background on this photo.

This was a 5.7MP crop from 16MP frame. This would be printed onto 2'x3' paper.

My goal was for a composition suitable for someone's bedroom/living room.

As corny as it may sound, I want to start practicing bird photography that is suitable for commercial purposes.
