Abstract

Previous surveys of scavengers in urban Kampala indicated an increase in the numbers of Hooded Vultures and a decline in the occurrence of other vulture species. This survey provides supporting evidence for this apparent trend with a total of 420–450 Hooded Vultures estimated as resident in urban Kampala and only one other species (Egyptian Vulture) recorded.
