Fiscal Flycatcher

Sigelus silens (endemic)

We first recorded this fiscal-like flycatcher in January 2010 while taking a walk around our neighbourhood park in Melrose North, Johannesburg.

Our best moment with this species took place in November 2012 at Thendele Camp in the Northern Drakensberg. We had a pair of these striking endemics staying near to our chalet, and for the duration of our stay, were able to watch the mom and dad  feed and interact with their very vocal youngster.
