Knysna Scrub-Warbler

Bradypterus sylvaticus Sundevall, 1860

The Knysna warbler or Knysna scrub warbler is a very shy and cryptic warbler, endemic to the coastal regions of South Africa. Its population is small and probably declining, due to natural and artificial fragmentation of its habitat, and limited dispersal and reproductive ability. Source: Wikipedia
