Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Slim, pretty, long-tailed member of the cisticola family that sports gray upperparts and buffy underparts with a black chest band. Common in montane forest of the Albertine Rift. Usually in pairs or small groups, readily joining mixed-species flocks. Vocalizations include a ringing “svink” and a lower “veet” which are often given in duet by a pair. Not known to overlap in range with Black-collared Apalis, and differs in having a buffy rather than white throat, and no white in the outer tail.
