Sooty Chat (Myrmecocichla nigra)

A stocky, short-tailed dark chat of the Mara/Serengeti grassland where it replaces the similar & more widespread Northern Anteater Chat. The male is glossy black with a white patch at the bend of the wing (sometimes concealed on perched birds). The female & juvenile are sooty-brown.
