Parus griseiventris (Miombo Tit)

Wikipedia Abstract

The miombo tit (Melaniparus griseiventris) is a species of bird in the Paridae family.It is found in Angola, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical dry forests. The miombo tit was formerly one of many species in the genus Parus but was moved to Melaniparus after a molecular phylogenetic analysis published in 2013 showed that the members of the new genus formed a distinct clade.
