Birding in Mozambique 

Third insight: near-endemic bird

From the forest behind the lodge with a bit of luck and a certain improvement of my camera’s skills…. 

The Woodward’s Batis (Batis fratrum, 12cm) is a near-endemic bird in dune forest in Mozambique and listed as Near-threatened. Therefore the ornithologists are usually very happy to observe it.

Here are two pictures to illustrate the difference between female and male:

Pale rufous throat, breast, flanks and wing bar for female (on the left). 

White throat and pale rufous wash to breast and flank, white wing bar for male (on the right).

The Woodward’s Batis is insectivore, monogamous and build cup nest concealed in foliage and among vines.
