Pale Batis

Batis soror

Similar-looking to the chinspot batis (but with a narrower breast band and slightly paler overall), these birds are local residents of Brachystegia and other woodland.

I have only once recorded this batis while birding Arabuko Sokoke Forest Reserve on theĀ east coastĀ of Kenya. The bird was high in the canopy and although I had good views of it, it was not close enough for anything more than a record photograph.
