The White-browed Scrub Robin (Cercotrichas leucophrys) occurs in sub-Saharan Africa.  It is widespread, preferring shrubby habitats with dense cover, but tends to be shy and cryptic – more often heard than seen. This White-browed Scrub Robin was more habituated to people than most, and sang from an exposed perch in a thorn at the Pilanesberg Centre, Pilanesberg National Park in South Africa.
