Red throat and chest bird in Uganda, near Queen Elizabeth NP

Recommended Posts

This bird was seen near highway during our visit to Uganda in late July. 

I can't find a match in my book. What bird is it?

 

Thanks!

Could it be Crimson-breasted shrike? We couldn't see the wing in this picture, so it is hard to say if it has the white bar on its wing.

As far as I know, they don't occur in Uganda.

Pretty sure Crimson breasted Gonolek(aka Black-headed Gonolek) and Crimson breasted Shrike are the same species...Laniarius atrococcineus

In eBird the Black-headed Gonolek is Laniarius erythrogaster and the Crimson-breasted Gonolek is Laniarius atrococcineus.
