Brief Summary

Read full entry
The pied babbler (Turdoides bicolor) is a medium-sized (75 - 95 g) passerine inhabiting semi-arid acacia savanna in the Kalahari Desert, southern Africa. The species is relatively terrestrial, foraging mainly on the ground and rarely flying more than a few hundred metres at a time. The diet of the pied babbler consists mainly of small invertebrates, although occasionally fruits and larger prey items such as lizards and scorpions are taken.
