SPECIES INFO

The African Hill Babbler (Pseudoalcippe abyssinica) is a species of bird in the Timaliidae family. It is monotypic within the genus Pseudoalcippe. It is found in Angola, Burundi, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, and subtropical or tropical moist shrubland.

The distinctive black-headed subspecies is sometimes split as the Ruwenzori Hill Babbler, Pseudoalcippe atriceps, but Fry et al. (2000) state it has the same vocalizations and behaviour as other races, and do not give it the status of a separate species.
