Quite common were the Spotted Doves. Most were feeding on the streets and would fly off to a nearby tree when we approached them.
The most plentiful species were the Scaly-breasted Munias. Flocks would gather and feed on the tall grass in the neighborhood.
During the lulls between the showers, both Long-tailed Shrikes, Collared Kingfishers and White-breasted Woodswallows were taking opportunities to hunt for prey.
Sometimes associating with the Spotted Doves were the smaller Zebra Doves which preferred to just move down the street instead of flying off when we approached them.
Our hunt for the Pied Bush Chats ended up with only a female.
Finally, Cynthia was able to get a shot at our target bird, the Tawny Grassbird, albeit a fleeting one.
Even though we didn't see as many birds as we had expected, it was sufficient to satisfy the birding itch we've been having.
