About this book

The Niassa Reserve is situated in the north of Mozambique, on the border with Tanzania. The huge reserve (4.2 million ha) is one of the largest protected areas of Miombo worldwide and is managed by a partnership of the public and private sectors.

This booklet is the result of an initial survey of the reserve, carried out mainly during the dry season. Four species designated as globally threatened (BirdLife 2000) have significant populations in the Niassa Reserve, namely the Taita Falcon, Southern Banded Snake-Eagle, African Skimmer and Stierling's Woodpecker.

The booklet presents an overview of the history of the reserve, threats to the birdlife, the types of vegetation and associated bird species and density estimates, followed by accounts of the 299 species.
