Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A striking black-and-white babbler lacking any facial markings. Groups of 3-15 range through arid savanna, preferring areas with thorn trees, where they associate with Red-billed Buffalo-Weaver and Crimson-breasted Gonolek. The species gives a high-pitched aggravated babbling in group chorus. The similar Bare-cheeked Babbler differs from the Southern Pied-Babbler by having bare black skin patches near the eye and a rufous nape.
