A review of birds in Uganda: records updating the Uganda Atlas and notes on species unrecorded since 1980

  • RQ Skeen


This paper is the first update of the Ugandan avifauna since the publication of the Bird Atlas of Uganda (Carswell et al. 2005) and reviews the status of selected species. It lists eighteen additions to the Uganda list since 2005, some the result of range expansion, but others revealed by advances in identification and technology. Secondly it deals with eight species which were listed in the Atlas in Appendix 1. These had been added provisionally to the list between 2000 and 2005 but some were then still under review by the East African Rarities Committee (EARC). Thirdly, it deals with species known before 1980 then not recorded again until after publication of the Atlas. Finally, it summarizes details of species known before 1980 but not recorded since.
