It’s true that you can always find a Robin in a park, but at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens in Cape Town, there seemed to be two different ones.
It looks just like an American Robin, and acts like one as well, digging through leafy litter, scratching at the base of plants, and hopping up to peer at you with its head cocked to one side. This is the Olive Thrush, in the same genus (Turdus) as the American Robin.
Another Robin look-alike is the Cape Robin-Chat. But this cute little guy is related to the old world flycatchers, instead of Thrushes.
The Robin-Chat hops through litter on the ground, foraging in nooks and crannies at the base of trees and shrubs, acting much like the thrushes do.
So then…not really two robins here after all. Just one robin relative and one pretender.
