Blackbird sized bird with a long tail - the breeding male tail would be twice as long as these in pictures. They are boldly coloured, rusty brown above, while the head and underparts are much darker, blueish-dark-grey to black.
This is a common sub-Saharan flycatcher found in open woodland and savannah. Here, seen in Kunene region of Namibia (northwest), around Sesfontein town, in arid open acacia tree-and-shrub landscape, very dry (but still magnificent and rich in wildlife) at the moment, following a three-year dry-spell. This group was observed around a water point, much greener than the rest of the area.
