Birdlife at Delheim: Southern Boubou
It’s that exciting time of year when our favourite birds start returning to Delheim – today we heard a Southern Boubou.
Unlike the true shrikes, which perch conspicuously in the open, the Southern Boubou prefers to forage in dense vegetation close to the ground, a habit which has led to its being called shy and skulking. The food is mainly insects, taken from the ground or picked off vegetation as the bird creeps low in bushes. It will also take small rodents, lizards, snails and fruits.
You can hear its call here.
