Yellow-breasted Apalis

Apalis flavida

This common resident of moist woodland and riparian forest is the only apalis with a bright yellow breast and no breast band (besides certain northern males who have a black bar beneath the centre of the breast).

We first recorded this common apalis in May 2010 while staying atĀ Mkuze Falls Game Reserve in northern KwaZulu Natal. One of them actually flew into our room and needed some help getting out.
