Orange-breasted Bush Shrike

Study With Safari Guides in Botswana

What safari guides should know:

This is a fantastic bird to show guests that are interested in birds. No matter what safari guide course you do with us, you will be hearing this bird on a daily basis. However, if you don’t go looking for him, you may well never see it! Often referred to as guides as the air-hostess bird because the piping whistle “ti-ti-ti-ti” is said to sound like “coffee-tea-or-me”


This spectacular bird can only be confused with the grey-headed bush-shrike in Botswana. The grey-headed bush-shrike has a much heavier bill and no yellow on the face.

Distribution in Botswana:

Common in the Okavango and far north-east, east and south-east but absent from the dry central, southern and western regions.
