Olive wash on chest plumage. [9] C. c. concolor ( Smith, A, 1833) – south Malawi and central Mozambique to east South Africa. Only faint olive wash on chest plumage, paler grey below than bechuanae. [9] Though their flight is rather slow and laboured, [4] they can cover long distances. [10] Once in the open tree tops however, they can display the agility which is associated with the Musophagidae, as they run along tree limbs and jump from branch to branch. [4] They can form groups and parties numbering even 20 to 30 that move about in search of fruit and insects near the tree tops. a b c d Turner, D.A. (2016).
