is derived from Sibley & Monroe checklists and bird distribution lists
in Thayer's Birder's Diary - Version
2.05, supplemented by information from BirdArea
from Santa Barbara Software. Endemic birds can ONLY be found in the
specific country listed. Speciality birds, while not endemic, are those
that can only be found in three or less countries in Africa. Information
on endangered birds is derived from the IUCN
Red List, Birdlife International, and the supporting data bases developed
by Ian Patton, of Merlin Species
Watcher. The endemic, endangered and speciality birds may be
uncommon, may be extremely rare vagrants, may be extirpated in a particular
country or may only be present in migration. Links for each country will
take you directly to the speciality bird information for that country.
