Orange breasted bush shrike ? (unless it's one of those whose name was changed?)
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.

I hope Mattaxel really means W/B Robin Chat and not W/B Scrub robin.
Also known as Heuglin's Robin.
Cupie doll to Micetta.
My reation was Bush-shirke too until I grabed it off the screen and lightened it.

Nothing wrong with the age, it's the "American" not to talk about the "Fairground Gallery" that I don't get :lol:
