Black-chested Prinia

Prinia flavicans

This is the only prinia with a broad black breast band, but be careful as it is absent in the non breeding adults, who can be easily mistaken for the similar looking tawny-flanked prinia.
We first recorded this species in Moreleta Kloof Nature Reserve near Pretoria.
