The male sooty chat has the white upper wing coverts and is distinguished from the northern anteater chat by having no white in the primaries, best seen in flight.

The left 2nd row female was seen in Bare-Rwanda, courtesy of Jason Anderson. The left 3rd row photo (Mara River, 9-14) is courtesy of Paul Oliver. All of the other photos were taken in the Serengeti near Lobo Lodge. Click the left lower photo to see 15 enlargements.
