I saw mine in front of the Family cottages now in April up at Punda maria camp. It was busy rumiging around in the scrub right infront of the hut 8)

In Punda- Try look for them in the Scrub all over camp but especially on the Flycatcher trail and in front of the family Cottages :wink:

Could be, Rosemary, but it might help if you could crop the photo a bit and also tell us where you saw it? Also, do you have any other pix, perhaps more of a side view?

I reckon it is a White-throated Robin-chat. Beautiful bird.
Go look at some of my photos (mostly birds) @ http://www.outdoorphoto.co.za/forum/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=20417

Expect the unexpected...
