Rufous Chatterer

Turdoides rubiginosa

Chatterers are more slender than their bulky babbler cousins, and make frequent contact with quiet, high-pitched calls. The rufous chatterer is all brown above with bright russet-brown underparts, pale-yellow eyes and a pale-yellowish or brownish bill.

We first recorded these babbler-like birds in September 2011 while staying at El Karama Eco Lodge in northern Kenya.
