The southern citril is a southeast African endemic. It differs from the African citril by having a grey or olive face, instead of black and a small supercilium. The right 4rd row photo was taken in Monduli (7-10), courtesy of Valéry Schollaert. The 5th row birds were seen in Arusha NP (left, 11-11) and Ngorongoro Crater rim (11-11), both courtesy of Doug McLennan. The others were taken in the Mt. Meru forest and at Simba Farm on West Kilimanjaro. Click the photo above to see 19 enlargements including gathering nest material.
