Bird Life in Kahuzi Biega National Park

Bird life in Kahuzi-Biega National ParkBird life in Kahuzi-Biega National Park; A rich natural habitat in the park supports the survival of different bird species. The park has total of 349 bird species of which 42 bird species found in the park are endemic to the Albertine Rift, including the Rockefeller’s sunbird, Grauer’s broadbill, Ruwenzori Turaco, Grauer’s warbler and Shelley’s crimsonwing. Birds play an important role in dispersing seeds throughout the park. Some species digest and excrete the seed, allowing seedlings to be spread far from the parent tree.

The hot, humid temperature in the lowland region is also ideal for insects that decompose plant material. A single leaf on the forest floor can be “digested” in only two months. Ants and termites alone account for more than 30% of the total biomass in a tropical forest.
