New PDF release: Birds of Ethiopia and Eritrea

Ethiopia and Eritrea have a desirable and designated avifauna. Poorly identified compared to many elements of Africa, wisdom on poultry distribution within the nations is scattered during the literature. For greater than 35 years, the authors were painstakingly accumulating fowl documents within the quarter and plotting them on half-degree maps, together with released documents, information from museum specimens, sightings from their very own huge travels and, extra lately, files from the various birdwatchers that now stopover at Ethiopia.

Example text

Dowsett-Lemaire and Dowsett (2006) gave examples of nesting in May and August in Malawi. In Namibia, there are two records for June and July (Jarvis et al. 2001). In Bostwana, there are records from August (Penry 1994) and May to July (Skinner 1997). In Zimbabwe, egg-laying dates from June, July and August (Irwin 1981; Hartley and Hulme 2005). © 2016 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC 50 Vultures: Their Evolution, Ecology and Conservation Population status The distribution of the White-headed Vulture is shown in Fig.

Fulvescens, ‘suggesting a topic for further analysis’ (Johnson et al. 2006: 74). Foraging The Himalayan Griffon vulture forages in small groups over open meadows, alpine shrublands and open, partly forested landcover. The commonest food source are carcasses of domestic yak (64%), followed by human corpses (2%) and wild ungulates (1%) (Lu et al. 2009). Himalayan Griffon vultures are usually dominant over all other avian scavengers, except for the slightly larger Cinereous vulture (Thiollay 1994; Grimmett et al.

2004). Bush encroachment after 1950 is a factor for the decline in the range of the Cape vulture (Schultz 2007). This involves the conversion of grassland and woodland savannas to dense acacia-dominated vegetation with minimal grass cover (Barnard 1998; Muntifering et al. 2006). This may result from changes in the incidence of bush fires and increased grazing pressure on grass (Ward 2005). There is no clear evidence that bush encroachment negatively affects vultures (Smit 2004). However, Schultz (2007) argues that it may reduce the visibility of carcasses for foraging vultures in dense bush (Houston 1974; Mundy et al.
