Birds of Lusenga Plain National Park, Zambia

p 38-44

Lusenga Plain National Park, situated in the far north of Zambia, is poorly known and difficult to reach. This paper summarises recent field work and presents a list of 214 species recorded in the park with an indication of status and habitat. The park has been identified as an Important Bird Area due to its high biodiversity and the presence of two species of global conservation concern, Lappet-faced Vulture Torgos tracheliotus and Wattled Crane Bugeranus carunculatus, and 26 biome-restricted species, including 20 Zambezian endemics and near-endemics.
