Beautiful robin-chat with a black face and a white crown. The color of the back varies geographically from slate-gray to black. Like a typical robin-chat, the tail has a dark center and orange sides. Found in forest, woodland, thickets, and gardens, usually in the understory. The pretty song is highly variable, including a variety of whistled calls and sometimes imitations of other bird species. Similar to White-crowned Robin-Chat, but smaller, with an orange chin and collar around the sides of the neck.
