Species Spotlight: Forest Robin

Time to put another bird in the Species Spotlight. 

An African species popped up: Forest Robin (Stiphrornis erythrothorax). This small passerine is the only species in the genus Stiphrornis. Its taxonomic position is not entirely clear, but generally you can find it in the Muscicapidae, the family comprising Chats and Old World Flycatchers. Most taxonomists consider it a single species, but some recommend to split it into five species (now subspecies).
