The southern citril is a southeast African endemic. It differs from the African citril by having a grey or olive face, instead of black and a small supercilium. The upper and left 4rd row photos were taken on Mt. Meru (11-07) and the 3rd row photos, at Olasiti (4-06). The 2nd row bird was seen at Simba Farm on West Kilimanjaro (8-14). The right 4rd row photo was taken in Monduli (7-10), courtesy of Valéry Schollaert. The left lower bird was seen in Arusha NP (11-11) and the right lower, Ngorongoro Crater rim (11-11), both courtesy of Doug McLennan.
