The African grey flycatcher is common and widespread. The fine black streaks on the head and the absence of streaks on the breast are diagnostic. Color varies from grey to grey-brown. The top photo (Serengeti, 7-18) is courtesy of Peter King. Immatures are in rows 3 and 4. The flight photo was taken west of Singida (7-16), courtesy of Florence Holmen. The other photos were taken in Engikaret, Lake Manyara NP, Olasiti, Tarangire and Shambarai. Click the photo above to see a slideshow that includes juveniles, immatures, a nest, and adults.
