    Verreaux's eagle-owl (Bubo lacteus), also commonly known as the milky eagle owl or giant eagle owl, is a member of the family species is widespread in sub-Saharan Africa.A member of the genus Bubo, it is the largest African owl, measuring up to 66 cm (26 in) in total eagle-owl is a resident primarily of dry, wooded : Aves. For many years, following the publication of Studies in Avian Biology No. 22 by Scott et al. (), ornithologists interested in Hawaiian birds have waited for the next synthesis volume on Hawaiian bird research. Finally there is one, and it is excellent. Thane Pratt and his colleagues from Hawaii have added another milestone in the punctuated equilibrium of information surrounding Hawaiian.

      The common babbler, better known as demalichcha in Sinhalese, regularly visits home gardens in flocks during the early hours of the day. They can be identified by their grey-brown feathers and loud chirping—hence the name ‘babbler’. The common babblers usually live in flocks of seven to nine birds per flocks, and each of these flocks has a well defined territory of sorts, which they.   The Gharana wetland conservation reserve (GWCR) is a semi-arid wetland adjacent to agricultural areas on the Indo-Pakistani border. Despite being declared an Important Bird Area (IBA) by Birdlife International, the occurrence and distribution of birds has not been well-documented in this area. Our aims were to systematically document the composition, relative abundance and feeding guilds of Cited by: 3.

Compared to other forests of Kenya (e.g. species in Mau forest, 97 in the Aberdares range; Bennun & Waiyaki ) the avifauna of the Karissia Hills is rather species-poor.

This is likely to be a consequence of the isolation of the area from the main forest. Jennifer F. Horne (died 5 August in Nanyuki, Kenya) also known as Jenny Horne or after her marriage as Jennifer Horne-Short was a Kenyan ornithologist and bioacoustican.
