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 3rd row photos of a juvenile were taken in Arusha NP (2-10). The 2nd row photos and the right 4th row photo of a bird on a nest in ivy was taken at the Marangu Hotel (11-03); the 6th row photos, at Ngorongoro CA Forest (1-16). The others were taken in Ngarwa and on Simba Farm-West Kilimanjaro. Click on the left lower photo to see 13 enlargements including a nest with eggs and another immature.
