Western, Sangha or Olive-backed Forest-Robin

Stiphrornis [erythrothorax, mabirae or pyrrholaemus] (= Stiphrornis erythrothorax) Hartlaub, KJG 1855

The forest robin or orange-throated forest robin is a species of bird from Central and West Africa. It is monotypic in the genus Stiphrornis. It has been placed in the family Turdidae, but is now generally placed in Muscicapidae in the group popularly known as chats. Most taxonomists consider it a single species, but some reviews have recommended recognizing 5 species. It has a total length of around 12 cm, has dark upperparts, and a throat and chest that, depending on the subspecies, is yellow-orange or deep orange. Source: Wikipedia
