Working for birds in Africa

Introduction

Mon, 01/14/2013 - 15:27 -- abc_admin

Few birdwatchers have ever visited this small country in West Africa or even know where it is situated, ornithological records are limited and many areas have not been surveyed. Only about 340 species have been recorded on the mainland, Rio Muni, whilst 198 species have been recorded on the island of Bioko and 19 species on the island of Annobón. Bioko and Annobón both have endemic species and subspecies. It is a country therefore which offers potential opportunities for the professional ornithologist and perhaps much of interest for the more adventurous birdwatcher.

The purpose of this document is to provide a summary of Equatorial Guinea and its birds for birders interested in the country and potentially planning a visit. The information has been put together from a number of sources and it is intended to add new information as it becomes available. As such, readers are welcome to submit contributions by e-mail to info@africanbirdclub.org. You should note that the names of birds used in this document are those of the African Bird Club checklist.
