Birdlife in DRC
Birdlife in DRC is incredibly rich and diverse, with a fairly small number of endemic species and a number of water birds and migratory species.
There are 17 endemic species in DRC, including Congo peafowl, Neumann`s coucal, Schouteden`s swift, Congo bay-owl, Itombwe nightjar, Bedford`s paradise-flycatcher, Itombwe alseonax, Prigogine`s greenbul, Kabobo apalis, Chapin`s crombec, Chapin`s mountain-babbler, Stuhlmann`s double-collared sunbird, Rockefeller`s sunbird, Ruwet`s masked-weaver, golden-naped weaver, yellow-legged malimbe and black-faced waxbill.
The wetlands and areas within Virunga National Park include herons, ibisis, egrets, bitterns, duck, geese, darters, cormorants, skimmers, shoebills, openbills, ospreys, gulls, francolins, warblers, weavers and pelicans.
Birding DRC is not recommended at present due to the volatile and unsafe situation in the country. The eastern areas are especially dangerous, however many of the once-protected forest and national park areas are also becoming unsafe.
If the current situation should abate and peace descends on the DRC then bird watchers will be able to visit some of the most beautiful birding regions in the world.
