      ANNOTATED CHECKLIST OF NYIKA BIRDS by Françoise Dowsett-Lemaire Extracted, abbreviated and updated in from the publication by Françoise Dowsett-Lemaire ‒ Annotated list and life history of the birds of Nyika National Park, Malawi–Zambia. Tauraco Research Report No. 8, Migrating birds know no boundaries and are arguably the most mobile creatures on Earth, undertaking epic journeys each year. More than migratory bird species have been recorded in southern Africa, with 44 Palearctic migrant species (Europe, Asia, northern Africa and the northern and central parts of the Arabian Peninsula) and 35 Intra-African migrant species having been recorded in South.

      This is a list of bird species recorded in avifauna of Zambia include a total of species, of which one is endemic, and one has been introduced by humans.. This list's taxonomic treatment (designation and sequence of orders, families and species) and nomenclature (common and scientific names) follow the conventions of The Clements Checklist of Birds of the World, edition.   It is found across Africa in most countries, but most importantly it can be spotted in Zambia. The African Pitta is an intra-African breeding migrant, breeding in southern and south-central Africa around November-December, and then heading back out to the equatorial Africa around March-April to its non-breeding grounds.

        In recent months, the indiscriminate and unsustainable killing of migrant birds in North Africa has become an issue of public concern in a growing number of countries. There has been widespread hunting and trapping of migratory birds in Egypt and also Libya, especially through the use of mist nets along large stretches of the Mediterranean coast. In response, the BirdLife Partnership, Govern. With over species of bird, including nearly 50 migrant species, this is a must-visit destination for birders. Intra-African migrants and Palearctic migrants include Barred Long-tailed Cuckoo, African Crake, Allen’s Gallinule, Dwarf Bittern, African Pitta, and large concentrations of Carmine Bee-eaters.

Intra African Migrants – Bird Migration Patterns. Breeding and non-breeding migrant birds speak for themselves and as mentioned in my previous post, they fall under our two main categories either Intra African migrants or Afro Palearctic migrants.

In this post, I would like to explain what we mean by Intra-African migrants. This project addresses some of the research, conservation and policy gaps concerning intra-African migrant birds. It also facilitates a research network that links research institutions across Africa, providing a near-regional operating base for other students and researchers to utilise in answering diverse questions about intra-African migrant.

The Palaearctic-African Bird Migration Systems The largest part of the book summarises all the available infor­ mation on the various migrants, listed species by species. For each, data are given on the breeding range (with some notes on systema-tics), migration routes and.

Intra-African migrants. Not all birds undergo such an immense trip to the northern reaches of the planet. Many birds prefer to stay in Africa, but in it more central regions.

These birds do tend to breed whilst in South Africa and it is this group that contains some of the more famous visitors to our country each year.

Most intra-African and Palaearctic migrant birds will have flown north by April. Accommodation tends to be very full during the school holidays focussed on the easter break.

The easter weekend coincides with South Africa’s longest running music festival, the four-day Splashy Fen, which has been held on a farm in the Ukhahlamba-Drakensberg. Birds, birding and bird watching books in Zambia The field guide which includes all the species found in Zambia is Birds of Africa south of the Sahara by Sinclair and Ryan.

A field guide to the Zambian Birds not found in Southern Africa by Aspinwall & Beel (currently out of print) coupled with a good South African guide such as the SASOL guide is also a possibility.

However, the causes of declines of many birds in West Africa, including Nigeria, are still poorly understood due to lack of information on habitat use and foraging ecology of both resident and. New in Struik Nature’s Pocket Guide series, this book covers an astonishing southern African birds yet is small enough to fi t in your pocket.

It is loaded with information that makes for quick and easy bird identification. Colour photographs show each bird, giving both male and female images where there’s a difference.

Concise text pinpoints key identifi cation features. The species is an intra-African migrant present in Zambia from October to April. Blue Swallow The Blue Swallow is only known to breed and occur in the grasslands of the Nyika Plateau (mostly on the Malawian side), although suitable foraging sites have been found in use on the Zambian side.

As a result, game viewing can be challenging, as animals are dispersed away from water sources and thick vegetation tends to reduce visibility, and minor tracks may be inaccessible when inundated with water. Most Intra-African and Palaearctic migrant birds will have flown north by April.

The Birds of Zambia) mention just one certain record for Zambia, of up to six birds at Uningi Pans, from 11 December to 13 January from ABC Bulletin The first Hartlaub’s Duck Pteronetta hartlaubii for the country was reported at a dam on a new mine development in the north-west on 10 January ; this record is well south of.

This intra-African migrant, the Diederik Cuckoo, will have tackled the journey from southern Africa to its tropical non-breeding grounds and back without ever having had contact with its parents.

A total of 95 avian species belonging to 44 families and 11orders were identified. Among 95 bird species, 93 are residents, one is intra-African migrant and one is Palaearctic migrant, and of the 93 resident birds, seven are endemic to Ethiopia, and ten shared between Ethiopia and Eritrea.

The salt pans are home to most of the resident and intra-African birds. In winter they are in the majority as the adult palaearctic birds head off to breed in the Northern Hemisphere.

AVIFAUNAL AREAS OF ZAMBIA To a large extent Zambia’s avifauna is that of the Central African Plateau. The vegetation is principally miombo woodland, bisected by grassy dambos along drainage lines.

Difference in mean annual population change between resident, intra-African migrants, and Palaearctic migrant waterbirds in South Africa. After controlling for migratory status, the average brood size, extent of chick development and male polygamy were significant predictors of population change (Table 3).
