Robin-Chats are one of the few birds who eats of of a mainly insectivorous diet. Robin chats were once classified in the thrush family but are now considered members of Family Muscicapidae, the Old World flycatchers.
The white-crowned robin-chat is the largest of the 14 species of robin-chat. It has a black head with a white crown, black back, wings and tail and an orange belly. The sexes are similar.
The robin-chats appear to be monogamous and territorial during the breeding season, but sometimes gather into small feeding flocks during the winter. The female lays two somewhat glossy grey-green eggs with violet spots in a cup shaped stick nest.
