Cut-throat Finch Amadina fasciata
Lake Awassa, Ethiopia
12 January 2014
I still have hundreds upon hundreds of photographs to edit following my return from Ethiopia last night, and a trip report to write, so you can bet that I am going to be busy for a while! Based on what I have edited so far, this little Cut-throat Finch (oh so aptly named) stood out, and seemed to be begging for a blog posting.
It was seen along the shoreline of Lake Awassa, towards the end of a day when we recorded over 180 species, a staggering total. There were many highlights but this species is certainly one of the most memorable.
