Sentinel Rock Thrush on Table Mountain | GetBirding. More

we encountered a pair of Sentinel Rock Thrush (uncommon in the southwest of their range) taking refuge from the wind behind a rock. Orange-breasted and Southern Double-collared Sunbirds roamed the vegetation in search of nectar and at one point, we bore witness to a heated aerial battle between a pair of Cape Buntings. Cape Grassbird was very obliging, perching right in the open and non-breeding Yellow Bishops were also present. More
