Yellow-crowned Gonolek

The Yellow-crowned Gonolek (Laniarius barbarus) is a very colorful bird. He is widespread in Western Africa but rare to see, because he prefers thick undergrowth. I made these photos in the Bijilo Forest Park in Gambia. Here the birds are common and are a keys species of the area.
