Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources




Endemic to northeast Africa, Rueppell's robin-chat is smaller than the white-browed robin-chat, has a mottled eye brow flecked with black feathers and has black central tail feathers (instead of olive-brown in the white-browed robin-chat). The top photo was taken in Usa River (5-20), courtesy of Per Holmen. All of the other photos including the leucistic bird were seen in Olasiti.
