Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Boldly marked babbler with a red eye and a white rump and belly. The white rump is very obvious in flight. Found in marsh, wet scrub, gallery forest, and thick woodland. Almost always in groups, which vary in size from several up to 15 individuals. Usually feeds by hopping along the ground. Raucous babbling call is frequently given, usually by a whole group in chorus. Similar in shape, size, and overall brown coloration to Arrow-marked and Black-faced Babblers, but easily separated by red eye, white rump and belly, and broad markings on the underparts.
