Abstract:

Habitat selection by Marico Flycatchers and Chat Flycatchers in the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park was studied during September 1985. Marico Flycatchers were found mainly along the rivers and in dune areas vegetated with tree savanna, and in both these habitats were predominantly associated with tall trees. Chat Flycatchers were found mainly in dunes vegetated with low shrubs and along areas of open river terrace. There was little difference in the overall height of the perches selected by the two species, and on the single occasion that they were seen foraging close together neither showed aggression towards the other.
