Beautiful little forest robin. There are white “stars” in front of the eye and on the bottom of the throat, which are usually hidden. Most subspecies have a black-and-yellow tail in which the black forms a bold “T”. Found in the understory of moist forest, exclusively montane forest away from South Africa. A shy and inconspicuous bird that is usually detected by voice. Song is a quiet and simple series of whistled notes. Also gives low, raspy calls, and a repeated up-and-down series of piping whistles. Distinctive when seen well.
