Pallid Honeyguide
Indicator meliphilus
Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources




The short thick bill, the light grey breast and the absence of a malar stripe are the features that best separate the pallid honeyguide from the lesser honeyguide. Note also the white loral spot and the pink base of the lower mandible (best seen in the enlargements). The upper four photos were taken in Olasiti (5-07). The lower bird was in the Udzungwa Mountains (6-07), courtesy of Dr. Louis Hansen. Click the photo above to see several enlargements.
