Artist's Description

Cape Robin (Cossypha caffra)

Camera : Canon EOS 550D
Cape robin-Chat in my garden (Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa)
Afrikaans : Janfrederik
.
My Robin, which comes into my house for snacks of minced meat, has been getting much tamer. Previously he wouldn’t let me photograph him in the garden, taking to the trees every time he sees me, but yesterday he was actually following me as I walked through the garden with my camera and even seemed to be taunting me!

The Cape Robin chat (Cossypha caffra) is a 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.
