An Exquisite Woodland Bird With Multi-Colored Plumage Of Orange, Olive Green, Black, And Yellow

There are many birds in nature that have strikingly beautiful plumage of multi-colors. They blend cleverly, making the bird more conspicuous whenever they appear. These birds even make a name for themselves in the world of birds with their unique colorful coat. Lifelong birdwatchers can never keep their eyes off these creatures. And we, normal people, also fall in love with them.

The gorgeous bushshrike is among these exquisite birds. This stunning woodland bird has a red throat, a black chest band, and a yellow belly. Additionally, its back, wings, and tail are beautifully covered in olive green. This cloak makes this species look like knights of the dark.

Gorgeous bushshrike birds are a member of the Malaconotidae family. They are native to the African continent in Angola, the Republic of Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Zambia, and in coastal areas of Kenya and Tanzania.

Thanks to the wide range, the population of these birds is very stable. They are now considered at least risk on the IUCN Red List.

This species prefers living in scrub or open woodland where they dine mainly on insects and other small prey.

When the breeding season begins, the female builds her nest in thorny thickets that are a meter or two above the ground. This nest is made from twigs and rootlets and very flimsy. She then lays 4 eggs in her nest, incubates them, and continues to feed the hatchlings until fully-fledged. Noticeably, both males and females join the parenting.
