Important bird area discovered in Ethiopia

2 Jun 2015 – 06:30 — Eduardo de Juana

Bird observations made in Muktar Mountain Forest in December 2013–January 2014 included six species of global conservation concern, 25 Afrotropical highlands biome-restricted species and two Ethiopian endemics: Yellow-fronted Parrot (Poicephalus flavifrons) and Juniper Babbler (Parophasma galinieri). The survey strongly suggests that the site qualifies as a highland biome Important Bird Area. The forest covers c.3600 ha and lies at an altitude of 2000–3010 m in the south-eastern Ethiopian highlands, 25 km far from the nearest town.

Check out the Internet Bird Collection’s Photo of the Month, by Marco Valentini.  There’s a blue and a green on the bird in that photo that I think is unique in the animal kingdom.

Also, what’s that?  A new Atlas to German Breeding Birds you say?
