The pale batis, also known as the East Coast or Mozambique batis, is a mainly coastal southeast African endemic, found in miombo woodland and coastal forests. The right upper photo of a male was taken at the Kisolanza (5-09), courtesy of Paul Oliver and the left upper female, along the Wami River (4-12), courtesy of Riaan Marais. The 2nd row photos were taken along the Wami River (5-11), courtesy of Tony Evans. The 3rd row bird (Amani, 12-14) is courtesy of Per Holmen. The nests were photographed in the Msumbugwe Forest (12-12). Note the narrow breast band in the male, one feature that separates it from the similar chin-spot batis.
