Common Fiscal

Postby DaveR » Sat Nov 27, 2010 10:14 am

I saw this Common Fiscal youngster last week at the Bisley Nature Reserve, Pietermaritzburg (KZN). Being the first time I had seen one my first thoughts was I'd seen a female Red-backed shrike, but thanks to bins and DSLR's, the mistaken identity was short lived.
