Margrates Batis


Margaret’s Batis (Batis margaritae); most common in the Cryptosepalum forests in North-western Zambia. The Margaret’s Batis is suspected to be a breeding resident in Zambia though observations suggest that there is some post-breeding movement by most birds from the Cryptosepalum forests from November to April. This however, needs further investigation as it is possible that birds are more discreet during the period of moult (rainy season).
