Scaly-throated Honeyguide Indicator variegatus (475)
(Gevlekte Heuningwyser)
Experiences with species

Chasing after a Green-backed Honeybird, I heard the distinctive call of this Honeyguide. It was soon located sitting one tree away from the Honeybird. I first saw one on Woodbush drive in Magoebaskloof, and found one for my dad's lifer at Albasini Dam. They are elusive, as we found when trying to find one in Zimbabwe.
