These rather shy forest birds are found from Knysna in southern South Africa to the eastern highlands of Zimbabwe, north to Ethiopia and west to Sierra Leone. Sitting motionless in a hunched up position in the shade for long periods of time, they can be difficult to spot. As they dart after insect prey, brilliant red and green plumage is a delight for the birdwatcher.
