Profile of a Cape Robin

Profile of a Cape Robin (Cossypha caffra). In our courtyard in Napier, Western Cape, South Africa.
NOTE: the specie name ‘caffra’ is derived from the Arabian word ‘kafir’ which is used as an indication for the lowest caste. In South Africa the word ‘kaffer’ was used during the ‘Apartheids’ years to indicate Africans. Officially the word is nowadays prohibited in the Rainbow Nation.
