The Cape Robin-Chat (Cossypha caffra) is a small passerine bird of the Old World flycatcher family Muscicapidae. It is a mainly resident breeder in southern and eastern Africa from Kenya south to Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland. It is a common species at forest edges and in scrub, fynbos, karoo, plantations, gardens and parks.
The Cape Robin-Chat has a harsh, low, trisyllabic alarm note “WA-dur-dra”. The Afrikaans name for this species, “JAN Frederik” gives the rhythm of this call, if the syllables of the latter part are run together. The song consists of variable short passages of musical notes, always starts with low slurred whistle cherooo-weet-weet-weeeet. Wikipedia
