Birds of Kenya

Some 1132 species of birds are present in Kenya.

Kenya Birds

The variation in habitat across Kenya means that different areas of the country have very different bird lists, making it a fascinating part of the world for birders to visit. Since so much of the coutry is open grassland or bush the birds are also relatively easy to see. Some specialist tours reckon on 5-600 species in a two week tour. Taking it fairly gently, without a specialist bird guide, but going on some of the bird walks available at lodges we’ve managed 350 species in two weeks; there’s a lot of birds out there.

The researchers suggest that the decline of vultures in Kenya’s Masai Mara is being driven by poisoning.

The US-based Peregrine Fund says farmers occasionally lace the bodies of dead cattle or goats with a toxic pesticide called furadan.
