There’s a flock of tiny birds in this park in Rome. I have no idea what they are:
They remind me of Sedge Warblers, but I know that’s not what they are. They are very wary as I approach. This one peers at me suspiciously:
Aren’t they fabulous?
They are crested, striped, fluffy and pale underneath with a reddish rump.
They are Streaked Fantail Warblers, Cisticola juncidis.
Aren’t they endearing?
