How to Identify?
To identify, I look for a dark brown spot in the middle of the breast surrounded by light grey feathers; the long tail and the dark stripe over the eyes.
We combine physical characterics and behavior patterns with location and seasonal aspects to identify species.
Where & When to Spot?
Except winter all seasons, along rivers, ponds and pathways. Usually looking for food on the ground within dense bush vegetation but exposed on top of a bush while performing its song.
With each photo, we store date and geo-location providing us data about location and season of observation. We also use a tracking utility to save observations in the field when there was no opportunity to take a good shot.
Anything to add, to correct?
