List of Birds of Guinea

List of Birds of Guinea

With a list of over 600 species including little-known species like Turati’s Boubou and Emerald Starling in a country the size of Britain, birding can be done almost anywhere in Guinea and there are good sites near the capital, Conakry. Few birders, however, have visited the country and it is much under-watched ornithological. Potential opportunities exist therefore for the more adventurous traveler or ornithologist.
