Northern Crombec

Sylvietta brachyura

This species has an extremely large range through much of east, central and west Africa. It is uniform grey above, with a whitish face and throat, cinnamon underparts and a dark eye-line.

I first stumbled across this species in September 2011 while doing an afternoon game drive in Kenya’s Tsavo West National Park. Unfortunately the little bird did not pose for a decent photograph.
