Birds from R Webbe Gestro, in S Ethiopia, thought to represent an undescribed race, and those from S Ethiopia–NE Kenya border region (Lak Bor watercourse, R Daua) another such; in each case, however, the possibility of hybrid origin evidently not yet excluded (R Webbe Gestro birds uniform brown above, brownish-white below, iris red; Lak Bor birds intermediate between jubaensis and carolinae in extent of white on head). Three subspecies currently recognized.
