Bird Families of the World

Chinspot Batis (f)

Wattle-eyes and Batises are small to mid-sized songbirds of forests and woodlands in sub-Saharan Africa. They are restless insectivores. Batises are the larger-headed of the two main groups in this family, and the wattle-eyes all bear brightly colored wattles above or around their eyes

The family is Platysteiridae

There are 31 species placed in 3 genera

So far I have photographed 6 different species. Of 4 species I photographed male and female. I have added a photograph of both.

To make it easier you can find the genus name combined with the species name (visible when displaying the photograph)
