Bush-shrikes (Malaconotidae)

Pringle's Puffback (Dryoscopus pringlii) - HBW 14, p. 97

French: Cubla de Pringle German: Zwerg-Schneeballwürger Spanish: Cubla de Pringle

Taxonomy: Dryoscopus pringlii F. J. Jackson, 1893, Mauungu Wilderness and between Tsavo and Kufumika Road, Kenya.
Considered to form a superspecies with D. gambensis, the two being very alike in plumage and having parapatric ranges (some sympatry in S Ethiopia). Birds of this species in Ethiopia, having greyer underparts, may represent a distinct race; further study required. Currently treated as monotypic.

Distribution: S & E Ethiopia, C & S Somalia, NW, NE & C to SE Kenya and NE Tanzania.
