For the Steere's Liocichla (Liocichla steerii) we developed seven polymorphic microsatellite markers from a partial genomic library enriched for GATA, tetranucleotide repeats. Among the 27-28 individuals screened, allelic diversity ranged from six to 19 alleles per locus and the observed heterozygosity of each locus ranged from 0.250 to 0.889. All loci conformed to Hardy-Weinberg expectations except for two that appeared to be Z-linked; such Z-linked loci can be used in studies of male dispersal.
