Cameroon Pipit

(Anthus camaroonensis)
Sometimes called Cameroon Mountain Pipit this may be a full species or may be a sub-species of Grassveld Pipit. This is an endemic of West Africa being found in montane grasslands. This bird was photographed in th Bafut-Nguemba Forest Reserve near Bamenda on the open grass slopes above the forest patches. This was an interesting find for the trip since we thought we were chasing a Bannerman's Pipit which occurs in the same area. Once we had eventually caught up with the bird which lead us a long way up an increasingly steep hillside it was noticed that some of the features did not look quite correct for a Bannerman's Pipit. Inspection of these photgraphs later lead to the conclusion that the bird was indeed a Cameroon Pipit. Video clip on http://ibc.hbw.com/ibc/index.html
