Unusual babbler with a black cap and a rufous collar and rump. Also note the pale bill and eye. Found very locally in the canopy and mid-story of montane forest along the Albertine Rift. Usually in small and vocal groups, which sometimes join mixed-species feeding flocks. The call is a raspy chattering. Very similar to Chapin’s Babbler, but not known to overlap in range, and easily separated by its black cap.
