Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small and nondescript honeyguide. Note the short but chunky bill and the white patches on the sides of the tail. Found in montane forest, where it is uncommon and inconspicuous. The main call is a repeated “tsee-you.” Very similar to Least Honeyguide, but even smaller, and lacks a dark stripe on the face. Similar in size to Wahlberg’s Honeyguide, but has a thicker bill and less white in the outer tail.
