Cape Bunting

The Cape Bunting (Afrikaans name, Rooivlerkstreepkoppie) is a (near endemic) common resident in the South of the country and uncommon in the North.

Little sparrow like birds with a striped head and face, feeding mainly on seeds and grain. Occurs mostly on rocky outcrops with a little bush or shrub.

We saw them in the West Coast National Park.
