I think this just may be the Cape Chat Robin:

Hi Noah Citizen, sorry for the late reply. I have searched this online and battled too, I'm going to have a look through a friend's bird guide to try figure this one out. You're right, it does look similar to a Cape Robin Chat, but I think yup fly catcher may be the one, just battling to find an image to confirm this though lol

flycatcher would be a good guess. but the is none apparently with these colors. it resembles the cape robin chat, but size is not correct... really good challenge! i am still searchibg

hum... I will have to find back my field guide for southern african bird and give it a try. There is so many endemic birds in South Africa, not counting the migrant... that's a challenge.

Thanks Liam, I tried searching species in South Africa, but there's so many. I'll have to ask around, thanks again for your input :-)

Really not sure on this one. I was thinking a type of Old World Flycatcher, but can't find a match. Try asking the folks on Birdforum.net.
