The black-headed batis is uncommonly seen, mostly in coastal scrub and drier areas inland (coastal race suahelicus) and open woodland in the west (western race erlangeri). The females (note the chestnut breast-band) were photographed at Mkomazi in August 2010 (right) and Mkumbara in September 2010, both courtesy of Valéry Schollaert. The males (black breast-band) were photographed at Lake Chala (2nd row, 11-10; 3rd row, 9-11), courtesy of Lyn Walterberg; and near Nyumba ya Mungu (3-12), courtesy of Paul Oliver.
