The White-throated Robin-Chat is endemic to southern Africa, occurring in Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland and South Africa’s North West, Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumalanga and Kwazulu-Natal provinces, where it inhabits savanna habitats and riverine thickets and feeds on insects, other invertebrates, and fruit.
White-throated Robin-Chats are usually seen in monogamous pairs and breed in spring and early summer, building cup-shaped nests of fine materials on the ground in dense cover or other suitable shelter. Clutches consist of 2 or 3 eggs and are incubated by the female only over a 2 week period. The chicks fledge when they’re two weeks old but remain dependent on their parents for food for up to two months after leaving the nest.
The IUCN considers the White-throated Robin-Chat to be of least concern. Adults are about 15cm in length and weigh approximately 23g.
