Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, fairly plain, brown-and-orange robin-like bird. The tail is uniformly rufous-brown and the face shows a pale-gray eyebrow. Found locally in the understory of montane forest. Very shy and inconspicuous. The song is a quick, tripping series of high whistles. Also gives an alternating series of high-pitched piping notes and low-pitched scolding trills. Similar in size, shape, and behavior to Iringa and Usambara Akalats, but distinguished by orange underparts.
