Hunter's Cisticolas

Cisticola Information Page ... Index of Cisticola Species ... Photos of the Different Cisticola Species for Identification

The Hunter's Cisticolas (Cisticola hunteri) are found in the African countries of Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda; where they inhabit tropical moist montane and high-altitude shrubland.

This species is well known because of its extraordinary dueting capabilities, where two birds sing in a distinctly coordinated fashion. For example, one may sing a rolling trill while the other whistles a piping accompaniment. Duetting birds may sing together, take turns, or sing right after the other.
