January 29, 2016 – White-throated Robin-chat (Cossypha humeralis)

These Old World flycatchers are found in parts of Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Swaziland, and South Africa. They eat invertebrates and fruits, foraging mostly on the ground, sometimes catching insects in the air. Their nests are open cups built from twigs, dead leaves, grass, and other plant materials. Females incubate the eggs alone, but both parents feed the chicks.
