The Lolldaiga Hills Ranch Bird List reaches 369 species!
By Tom Butynski & Yvonne de Jong, Lolldaiga Hills Research Programme
A new bird list bird list has been compiled for Lolldaiga Hills Ranch. A dozen species have been added to this list since November 2015. The total number of bird species on the current list is 369. Of these, 12 species are globally threatened with extinction; three are ‘Critically Endangered’, five are ‘Endangered’, and four are ‘Vulnerable’. In addition, nine species are ‘Near Threatened’.
Two species, Lammergeier and Southern Ground Hornbill, have been extirpated from the Lolldaiga Hills. Lammergeier no long occurs in Laikipia County. Southern Ground Hornbill, if still present in Laikipia County, must be down to but a few individuals.
