Slate-coloured Boubou

Laniarius funebris

This charcoal-coloured boubou spends its time in subtropical or tropical dry forests and dry and moist shrubland as well as dry savanna. It is found in Ethiopia, Rwanda, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda.

We first recorded this boubou in September 2011 at El Karama Eco Lodge near Nanyuki, Kenya. Being the only black boubou of bush country, it was relatively easy to identify.
