Abyssinian catbird, Parophasma galinieri (protonym, Parisoma Galinieri), also known as the Ethiopian catbird or as the juniper babbler, photographed at the Bale Mountains, Ethiopia (Africa).
Response: This is an Abyssinian catbird, Parophasma galinieri, which is endemic to the Ethiopian highlands.
Four endemic bird genera are found in this part of the hotspot, including three that are widespread (Cyanochen, Rougetius, and Parophasma) and one that has a very localized distribution in the south (Zavattariornis).
Other birds considered as near-endemic to this ecoregion include dark-headed oriole (Oriolus monacha), Abyssinian catbird (Parophasma galinieri), Abyssinian slaty flycatcher (Dioptrornis chocolatinus), and yellow-fronted parrot (Poicephalus flavifrons).
