Birds of Kenya

Birding in Kenya

With over 1,100 recorded species, Kenya is one of Africa’s best birding destinations. In Africa, this number of species is only exceeded by the much larger and inaccessible Democratic Republic of Congo. 

A fair number of endemic and near-endemic species can easily be seen on any birding trip. These birds are especially sought-after as they only occur within the country or marginally beyond. The European migrants are present from September to April.

The Birds

More than 1000 species of birds can be found in Kenya. They include eagles, vultures, hornbills, weavers, flamingos, and ostriches. 

Common Kenyan birds are easily identified by color, behavior, size or habitat. Certainly what is considered as a common bird in one area might for all purposes be vulnerable in another.

Also birds species may be available in a particular season: for example Widowbirds will be much easier to find in grasslands with mature seeds. Similarly Sunbirds are up and active with new flowers and European migrants are on the African hinterland as they escape the harsh winter.
