Remarks
» This rather bedraggled bird flew into our campsite at night perhaps attracted by the light of the fire. It has been suggested that the birds on the islands of São Tomé and Príncipe constitute an undescribed race. There are no confirmed breeding records from the islands.Seen well on the Birdquest 2009 Gabon, São Tomé & Príncipe tour. See more photos on my website: http://web.me.com/nikborrow
