Bearded Scrub-robin

Cercotrichas quadrivirgata

Southern Africa has 5 species of Scrub Robin. The Bearded Scrub Robin can relatively easy to distinguish from the others as it has no wingbars (when compared to White-browed) and is much more warmly coloured than the more drabbish Brown Scrub Robin. It can be found foraging in the leaf litter of sand and riparian forest as well as termitaria thickets in mature, broadleafed woodland

My best encounter with this species is a toss up between a lodge on the banks of the Blyde River and Berg en Dal Restcamp in the Kruger National Park.
