Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large honeyguide with a finely-spotted throat and streaky breast. Large white patches at the base of the outer tail are conspicuous in flight. Found in dense woodland, thickets, and forest. Inconspicuous bird that is most often detected by call: a high-pitched, ascending, insect-like trill. Similar to Spotted Honeyguide, but there is little overlap in range, and Scaly-throated shows fine pale spots above the eye and bill.
