White-headed Robin Chat is an African endangered bird, known only from two sites worldwide: one site is in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the other is near the community of Kinjila in northern Angola. Although the first nest of this special bird was found by Pedro Vaz Pinto and Ian Sinclair in 2005, there was no documentation of the nest. This nest, found by Arnon Dattner, was protected by a group of local birdwatching guides who act to conserve the forests and the birds around the community of Kinjila.
