Ok .............. so you need a bit of help??

Important clues above:

A bird, larger than a dove, not really colourful and not predominately brown. It is an Uncommon Resident and is mainly an insectivore but has been known to eat small reptiles as well. It is found in a SANPark but not in KNP; KTP or Mapungubwe.
