The African pitta (Pitta angolensis) is an Afrotropical bird of the family Pittidae. It is a locally common to uncommon species, resident and migratory in the west, and an intra-African migrant between equatorial and southeastern Africa. They are elusive and hard to observe despite their brightly coloured plumage, and their loud, explosive calls are infrequently heard. They are extraordinary colourful birds, not too dissimilar from the equally bright coral reef fish. The African Pitta is a particularly colourful jewel boasting azure blues, pinks, greens, reds and yellows!They are found in the Big Five country which makes them incredibly exciting to find and one often shares the ‘Pittas’ thicket with buffalo, elephant, lion and leopard.
