Empidornis semipartitus


The silverbird (Empidornis semipartitus) is an Old World flycatcher native to Eastern Africa, from Sudan to Tanzania. The species is the only member of the genus Empidornis. The silverbird is a stunning flycatcher of open areas west of the Rift Valley, silvery grey above and tawny orange below, looking superficially like the N American Robin. Juveniles have black-bordered tawny spots on upperparts, mottled buff and black on throats and breasts.




We saw these from tarangire through the serengeti
