A breeding resident. Locally common, occurring throughout the area wherever its preferred habitat of extensive rock outcrop is to be found. Mostly detected at night from its yelping "cow-wow" call. It calls year-round but is most vocal in early summer. The Waterberg is a stronghold for this species in South Africa.
