Finding Grey-necked Picathartes in Korup National Park, Cameroon

p 101-102

The Grey-necked Picathartes Picathartes oreas attracts the interest of ornithologist and eco-tourist alike, but has been difficult to see because of lack of accessible observation sites. Picathartes are widespread in appropriate habitat in Korup National Park (KNP) and the Korup Project Area (KPA) and near Mamfe in Cameroon as well as in Cross River National Park, Nigeria. Since 1993 an area with many picathartes nesting sites in southern KNP has been served by a network of trails and camps, making it possible to see the birds during the June-November nesting period.
