Brubru

Nilaus afer

This small, black-and-white bush-shrike with chestnut flanks is always an exciting bird to connect with. To find it in southern Africa you have to look in Acacia savanna, Miombo or Mopane woodland, where it is a common resident.

We first recorded this arboreal species in April 2011 around are tented camp near Nxai Pan, Botswana. My best sighting, however, occurred in July 2012 while walking around the dining area within the Waterberg Plateau Park, northern Namibia.
