Chestnut-breasted Mannikin

I happened upon this little guy, and was able to get pretty close. It saw me, but was just too interested in the grass seeds to bother about me.

Wow magnificent. I always find these guys very flighty

Thank everyone. I found a mob of them a week or so after this, and they fled before I got with 20 metres of them.
