The species of birds found in Eritrea number 588. These species are grouped by family according to the Clements Checklist of Birds of the World, 2021 edition. There are also tags for species that don’t fit into one of these categories. These are native species that occur throughout Eritrea. Read on for more information. This article will give you a quick overview of some of the species that may be found in Eritrea.
The endemic Red-throated Pipit has recently been reported in Eritrea for the first time. Eritrea is the northernmost place in Africa where this species is found. However, it is a very uncommon bird and is therefore likely underrepresented in the country. This species is found mostly in the south and is not often seen in the north. Here are some facts about the species and the distribution of its range in Eritrea.
The Montane Nightjar has a small range in the highlands of the southern part of Eritrea. It occurs in mountainous regions throughout eastern Africa, reaching northern Eritrea. It is not known whether this species is endemic to highland Eritrea, but it was recently discovered in the south of the country. Its population is growing, but it is not yet well-known.
The Trumpeter Finch is one of the most elusive species in the Horn of Africa, with only one other location recorded. Previously, it was only found in Djibouti. It is now the only known species of Trumpeter Finch in Eritrea, but this bird is likely a resident. The Yellow-crowned Canary was also recently recorded in the country and is now a common species throughout the region.
The Adi Keih area is central to the Abyssinian Highlands in Eritrea, and many records point to this area as a good place to find the species. Eritrea is also home to many rare and unusual animal species, including some species that are unique to the country. The following are some of the more important species to see in Eritrea. There are more details to come.
There are two species of wattle-eyes in Eritrea: an accidental and an endemic. The latter occurs only in the country. The accidental species occurs in the country, but they are hardly ever seen. The latter occurs in the country in the southeastern part of the country. It is widespread in the wetlands, but is elusive in other parts of Africa. It can also be found in urban areas, such as Addis Ababa.
The wattle-eyes are a small passerine. They are arboreal, with short legs and an upright posture while perched. Their tails vary in length, and they have flat, hooked bills. The plumage of the species is dimorphic and their plumage is spotted with dark brown feathers. They are best spotted in trees with low foliage, since their plumage reflects the climate.
The African Spotted Creeper (Salpornis salvadori) and the Mouse-colored Penduline-Tit (Anthoscopus musculus) are two other species that are common in Eritrea. The latter occurs in the Awash National Park, where it is known as the “African-type” wattle-eye. It is common in Awash National Park, and has recently replaced the previous form of the species.
The wattled ibis breeds in March and July, and occasionally in December during the dry season. They lay two to three dirty-white eggs. Despite their low-profile, the species does not face any obvious threats. In fact, it is quite common in urban areas, including Addis Ababa. Because its habitat is not subjected to significant human disturbance, it is not considered a conservation concern.
The bushshrikes of Eritrea are an endangered species, but the population numbers have been steadily increasing in recent years. They are a member of the Malaconotidae family, which includes boubous and other shrikes. Their range is primarily limited to dry shrubland and scrubland. The genus Laniarius is a diverse group of birds. Their main differences include their range and vocalizations. Among these, the Fiery-brested Bushshrike is an endemic bird of lowland forests.
These birds are closely related to other species of shrikes, including the Helmet-Shrike and Wattle-eye. However, they are distinct from true Shrikes. True shrikes need trees for perching. They look down on their hunting grounds from trees. However, unlike true shrikes, bush-shrikes of Eritrea have been listed as Near Threatened in several countries. Therefore, we must protect our species.
The scientific name for bushshrikes is Telophorus, and it was first described from a South African species. These birds are also known as Bokmakierie in Afrikan. They can be heard and seen in dense thorn veld, although they are most frequently heard. A male of this species may have a buff underparts. They are also found in Ghana. However, they are rarely seen in the wild.
The bushshrikes of Eritrea are endemic to the country. There are three species of bushshrikes, both accidental and endemic. In addition, the country’s climate makes it ideal for many kinds of agriculture, including rice and wheat. However, the country has a diverse landscape, with high mountainous areas, arid coastal plains, and numerous oases and deltas. This makes Eritrea an ideal destination for birdwatching.
The Dorcas gazelle, also known as the ariel gazelle, is a species of Gazelle that lives in the semi-desert climate of Africa and Arabia. This species is closely related to the mountain gazelle, but differs from it in a number of ways, including having longer ears and stronger curved horns. Its coloration is pale fawn, with darker flanks and face. Its horns curve forwards at the tips. The dorcas gazelle breeds from September to November. It usually produces one fawn, but twins have been reported in Algeria. Its young are well-developed at birth, attempting to stand within an hour of birth, and suckle on the first day of life.
While other species of gazelle live in other areas of Africa, the Dorcas gazelle has limited distribution in the country. Its range was once large and varied, with populations in areas as far apart as Ethiopia, Sudan, and southern Sudan. Its population in Israel has decreased over the past decade, with only about 1,000-1500 remaining in the country. Listed as a vulnerable species in the zoo, the Dorcas gazelle is now endangered in many parts of its range.
The southern Red Sea is a suitable habitat for simmering gazelle and Dorcas. Both species can be seen in small groups, with up to 15 males in a single flock. The Southern Red Sea of Eritrea provides a sheltered harbor for them. James Clements, an American birder, has archived 566 bird lists in Eritrea, including the Dorcas gazelle.
The Soemmering gazelle is a large, elegant antelope native to the Horn of Africa. It has three subspecies: Soemmering gazelle (G. soemmerringii), Soemmering gazelle (G. berberana), and butteri. They are primarily found in southern Ethiopia and Djibouti. There are several dangers to the species, including habitat degradation and illegal hunting.
The most notable risk is habitat destruction. The Eritrean coastline is home to several rare species of wildlife, including the Soemmering gazelle (G. eritrensis). Fortunately, Eritrea has four national protected areas – the Red Sea, the northern Anseba region, and the Dahlak area. Despite the dangers of deforestation, the country has passed laws to protect native flora and fauna. It is also home to five species of sea turtles, two of which have regenerated from extinction.
Soemmering gazelle numbers are relatively stable year-round, but they do vary seasonally. During the dry season, their numbers are low. In the wet season, their density is much higher than during the dry season. However, their preferred habitat is dry acacia country. The Soemmering gazelle population, in particular, shows seasonal preference and is largely made up of adult females.
The Soemmering gazelle, also known as the Eritrean Gazelle, has been around for 90 years, after which it was accidentally deemed extinct. A conservationist discovered a small population in 2016 and the Eritrean government has since protected the species’ habitat. The Eritrean side-neck turtle is another endangered species. It is one of the smallest gazelle species and uses pronking behavior to alert predators. It is an important part of the ecosystem, but its future is uncertain.
The White-rumped babbler, also known as the Winding Cisticola, is a fairly common bird in the coastal scrub and wetlands of Eritrea. This species is also known to be endemic to Eritrea, and its appearance is often difficult to distinguish from similar-looking species from other regions of Africa. There is one subspecies of the species, which may be a separate species altogether.
This bird is part of the Leiothrichidae family and is found in the African countries of Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, and South Sudan.

A native of Ethiopia, Eritrea’s White-rumped babbler is found in the acacia forests of the mountains. It usually lives in small flocks of four to ten birds. It feeds on churu beles and asha garab. It also winters in nearby countries. During migration, it spends part of its year in Eritrea, N. Ethiopia, and Sudan.
