Genus: Picathartes


Two species of Rockfowl; found in tropical Africa.


There has been much controversy placing this genus systematically as its various placements in crows (Corvidae), starlings (Sturnidae), flycatchers (Muscicapidae) and the babblers (Timaliidae) should illustrate. Its now widely accepted family status is now usually positioned near the thrush-babbler grouping.
