Cisticola cinnamomeus

The Pale-crowned Cisticola, or Cisticola cinnamomeus, presents itself as a charming bird with a modest yet distinctive appearance, belonging to the Cisticolidae family.

Distribution

This bird graces the African continent with its presence, ranging from the eastern reaches of South Africa to the verdant expanses of Gabon and Tanzania.

Great bird recording
For a while I’ve been trying to find an app to easily record bird lists and day out and struggled to find one that I like. Birda is great for this, straightforward and a great community!

Really great app
It’s easy to use and it’s fun to log the birds you notice on a walk or just in your garden. There’s a option to record the birds you see in a session which is really nice. Good excuse to stop for a while and just watch birds. I am also enjoying the information part where you can find out fact about birds from all over the world.

As a young birdwatcher who was always keen to be apart of a community but never seemed to find one, my problem was solved downloading this!!! Everyone is so friendly and just as excited to see birds as me 😁
