The Brubru is distributed in Africa south of the Sahara where there is suitable woodland or scrub.

A member of the Bush-shrike family, the male is striking with his black crown, white forehead and black, white and buff upperparts. Underparts are white with chestnut on the flanks. These photos show the much duller female.
