Pririt Batis

Batis pririt (Near-endemic)

This species is a common batis of the arid savannah and karoo. The female can be identified by its buff-washed breast and throat while the male has dark, grey speckled flanks.

We regularly recorded it in July 2012 while travelling through Namibia for 4 weeks, with our besting sightings occuring at Erongo Wilderness Camp, Dolomite Camp in Etosha and Zebra River Lodge near Sossusvlei.

Good sites for this species in South Africa include the rest camp at Augraabies National Park as well as Twee Rivierin rest camp in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.
