This Secondary Area is defined by the range of Tanzania Masked Weaver Ploceus reichardi in south-west Tanzania (Hall and Moreau 1970), and extreme north-east Zambia (Leonard and Beel 1996; see map, p. 358). It is usually found in swamps, and is perhaps entirely restricted to this habitat during the breeding season (Louette and Benson 1982). The wetlands in this region do not appear to be under immediate pressure (Hughes and Hughes 1992), and a substantial area is protected within the Uwanda Game Reserve (IUCN 1992b).
