    Nice small #bird , not sure about the species, thought maybe one of Cisticolas 😃

    My guess from having kept the related Red billed species many years ago, looks like a young (or non breeding) male Red Headed Quelea.

    I found http://www.africanbirdclub.org/afbid/search/birddetails/species/2266/19877 . Think is a close match considering image distortion.

    But it has a little thin bill, not like a quelea. I'd go with Cisticola, maybe Stout C.

    I think it is one of th smaller streaked cisticola species that occur in grasslands maybe Zitting cisticola. Frame 1 & 2 shows a thin bill.
