Pogoniulus makawai

The white-chested tinkerbird is a species of bird in the Lybiidae family . It is endemic to the Zambezian Cryptosepalum dry forests of Zambia. It is only known from the single type specimen, collected in 1964 by Jali Makawa, the field assistant and collector for Constantine Benson. Genetic evidence suggests that it may not a separate species, but instead be a population embedded within the yellow-rumped tinkerbird if it is not an aberrant individual.
