Uganda Endemic Species
Information on endemics and specialities is derived from Sibley & Monroe checklists and bird distribution lists in Thayer’s Birder’s Diary – Version 2.05, supplemented by material found in Where to Watch Birds in Africa – by Nigel Wheatley. African speciality birds, while not endemic, are those that can only be found in three or less countries of Africa. Information on endangered birds is derived from the IUCN Red List, Birdlife International, and supporting data bases developed by Ian Patton, of Merlin Species Watcher. The endemic, endangered and speciality birds may be uncommon, extremely rare vagrants, may be extirpated in the country now or may only be present in migration. However, documented sightings of each species noted below have been made in Uganda.
