Incubation behaviour of the White-browed Scrub-robin Cercotrichas leucophrys
The White-browed Scrub-robin is the most widespread of African robins, occurring throughout much of the low to moderate rainfall savannah woodlands in Africa. Although common throughout its range, its shy disposition and habit of darting for cover at the least provocation has made this species difficult to observe and, as such, various aspects of its general biology are still poorly known. Details of its incubation behaviour are particularly scant but are known to be performed by the female only, commence upon clutch completion and lasts 12 to 14 days. Nothing is known about the duration of its incubation shift lengths and nest attendance patterns.
