Forest or Short-tailed Batis

Batis mixta

This red-eyed, short-tailed batis is a shy occupant of thick coastal forest, where pairs can be seem feeding in the lower stratum.

I first recorded the “ultima” sub-species of the short-tailed batis in September 2011 while birding Arabuko Sokoke Forest Reserve with Jonathan Baya.
