Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A striking medium-sized robin-chat with a slaty gray crown and back separated from the black wings and face mask by a white bar in the shoulder and a white eyebrow, respectively. The throat and breast are white, fading into amber orange on the vent, on the rump, and in the outer tail. Pairs prefer thickets in a variety of woodland types, where they forage secretively on the ground by flicking through leaf litter. They will remain low or sit up on perches to sing their high-pitched melodious song which includes imitations of other species.
