Zitting cisticola in sunflower field in Andalusia

One of the tiniest but also noisiest birds of Andalusia. Typical for the low and hot regions of the south west. The male builds an initial nest structure and then to impress the females, it displays a zigzagging flight accompanied by noisy regular "zitting" calls. If the female accepts the male, she will complete the nest.
