Golden-breasted Bunting

Emberiza flaviventris


Another bunting found in Namibia, this one boldly coloured and easily distinguished. Male, featured here, sports black-and-white striped head, chestnut coloured back and golden-yellow coloured belows, throat and belly, while there is a large orange coloured bande on chest. Female is a bit duller.


Observed in Kunene region, north west of Namibia, in gardens of a camp where we were staying; these gardens leading to an arid acacia tree-and-shrub landscape beyond. The region is still very dry (but still magnificent and rich in wildlife) at the moment, following a three-year dry-spell.
