Arrow-marked Babbler

Turdoides jardeneii

These widespread, brown babblers are easy to find given the raucous noise they make while moving between thickets and bush clumps in wooded savanna. Interestingly, they are also co-operative breeders, with the female laying three plain, blue-green eggs, which are incubated by both parents, as well as with the assistance of some adult helpers.

. We first recorded this species in April 2010 while visiting Kloofwaters in Magaliesburg.
