Sicklewing Chat

The Sickle-winged Chat is 14–15 cm long and weighs around 19 gm. Its upperparts are dark grey, but it has brown wings and a rufous patch behind the eye. The tail and rump are buff-pink, with an inverted wedge of black at the end of the tail. Its underparts are off-white, the short straight bill, legs and feet are black and the eye is brown. The sexes are similar, but the juvenile has buff tips to its feathers.

The Sicklewing Chat is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.
