pp 39-41

An important colony of Ardeidae and Threskiornithidae in the Loza estuary, north-west Madagascar. During five visits between April 2004 and June 2006, a heron and ibis colony was surveyed on the island of Ambarimboro, in the Loza estuary, north-west Madagascar. The colony, which appears to be the largest of its kind described from northern Madagascar to date, comprised six heron species, including Humblot's Heron Ardea humbloti (Endangered), two ibises, among them Madagascar Sacred Ibis Threskiornis bernieri (Endangered), and one spoonbill. In addition, two species of raptor bred in the Loza estuary, one of these being Madagascar Fish Eagle Haliaeetus vociferoides (Critically Endangered).
