Description:

Brown Firefinch: Lagonosticta nitidula.

Summary / Notes:

A relatively widespread species in north-east Namibia, this bird occupies 14,800 km2 of dense thickets adjacent to perennial rivers. It enters the Rare and Peripheral category because in southern Africa it is restricted to the Okavango Delta of Botswana, the Okavango, Kwando, Chobe and Zambezi river systems of Namibia and extreme western Zimbabwe. It is a poorly known species whose density, population size and conservation needs are virtually unknown. It breeds from October to April in Zimbabwe; only two nests are known from Namibia, with eggs being laid in February. It is the host of the Village Indigobird (Steelblue Widowinch) Vidua chalybeata.
