About this book

Language: English with bilingual summary in English and French

The threatened species, White-breasted Guineafowl Agelastes meleagrides, Rufous Fishing Owl Scotopelia ussheri, White-necked Picathartes Picathartes gymnocephalus, Western Wattled Cuckoo Shrike Campephaga lobata, Green-tailed Bristlebill Bleda eximia, Yellow-throated Olive Greenbul Criniger olivaceus, Nimba Flycatcher Melaenornis annamarulae and Black-headed Stream Warbler Bathmocercus cerviniventris, and the near-threatened species, Brown-cheeked Hornbill Bycanistes cylindricus, Yellow-casqued Hornbill Ceratogymna elata, Lagden's Bush Shrike Malaconotus lagdeni, Copper-tailed Glossy Starling Lamprotornis cupreocauda, and Rufous-winged Illadopsis Trichastoma rufescens, are reported from Taï National Park, Côte d'Ivoire.

The threatened species, Western Wattled Cuckoo Shrike Campephaga lobata, Green-tailed Bristlebill Bleda eximia, Yellow-throated Olive Greenbul Criniger olivaceus, and Nimba Flycatcher Melaenornis annamarulae and the near-threatened species, Brown-cheeked Hornbill Bycanistes cylindricus, Yellow-casqued Hornbill Ceratogymna elata, Lagden's Bush Shrike Malaconotus lagdeni, Copper-tailed Glossy Starling Lamprotornis cupreocauda, and Rufous-winged Illadopsis Trichastoma rufescens, are reported from forest reserves (forêts classées) in Côte d'Ivoire. Brown-cheeked Hornbill Bycanistes cylindricus, Copper-tailed Glossy Starling Lamprotornis cupreocauda, Western Wattled Cuckoo Shrike Campephaga lobata, Rufous-winged Illadopsis Trichastoma rufescens and Nimba Flycatcher Melaenornis annamarulae, were observed at least once in areas of planted commercial forest trees.

Baseline data on the daily and seasonal occurrence, moult and breeding are presented for bird species in Taï National Park, the largest block of intact and protected West African forest.

A comparison of the avifauna of natural forest, forest plantations, and degraded forest shows that the avifauna of older forest plantations (greater than 20 years of age) resembles natural forest, but the avifauna of younger forest plantation supports an assemblage of birds more typical of farm bush.
