A white brow robin-chat
The Muscicapidae family of birds includes the Heuglin’s robin, also referred to as the white brow robin-chat.
The mature bird has brownish grey upper plumage and bright orange under plumage.
The white eyebrows that extend from the beak to the rear of the head are situated slightly above the eyes, and the crown is black.
Young birds have duller plumage, a lighter abdomen, and fine speckling around the head.
They are an African bird that may be found from Chad and Sudan all the way down to South Africa. They can also be found in the DRC, Tanzania, Angola, and Zambia.
White brow robin-chats like the habitats of riverine woods with patchy canopies, evergreen thickets near lakeshores, and Acacia woodlands.
It is acceptable to have a few trees near open spaces, as well as in suburban gardens and parks.
They breed as monogamous pairs from August to January, constructing an open cup-shaped nest from fallen leaves and twigs.
Surrounded by rootlets, leaf midribs, and occasionally incredibly little twigs.
The nest is concealed behind an overhang and is located inside a hollow tree trunk or among the branches of shrubs.
Two to three eggs are laid by the female, and they are incubated for fourteen to seventeen days.
Both parents feed the young for 13–17 days after the eggs hatch.
With the exception of the extremes, this species has a wide breeding range and is regarded as common over most of it.
