This is another one of the lovely bird sightings from Lake Naivasha. First time that i have managed to sight and photograph the Purple Grenadier (Uraeginthus ianthinogaster). It is a tiny and very colourful bird from the waxbill family. Very well known for its song which often starts with a strong high trill which continues as a rising metallic squeaking, sit-t-sit sit siiiiiiii, and the call is a metallic exlosive zeet, often repeating.Camera Model : Canon EOS-1D Mark IVExposure : 0.004 secondsAperture : f/2.8ISO Speed : 1000Lens : Canon EF 300mm f2.8 IS L USM
