Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources






The cape robin-chat's grey belly and flanks distinguish it from other robin-chats. It has a patchy distribution in east Africa, especially at higher elevations in many habitats including forest and gardens. The 2nd row photos of a juvenile were taken in Arusha NP (2-10). The top row photos and the the right 3rd row photo of a bird on a nest in ivy was taken at the Marangu Hotel (11-03). The others were taken in Ngarwa (6-09).
