Country checklist and status

You can download and print separate checklists for Annobón, Bioko and the mainland of Equatorial Guinea.

The Gulf Of Guinea Conservation Group website at http://www.ggcg.st also contains the BOU checklist for the islands of Bioko and Annobón.

Endemic species

Annobón White-eye Zosterops griseovirescens a

Some authorities raise Annobón Paradise-Flycatcher Terpsiphone smithii but the African Bird Club treats this as a subspecies of Red-bellied Paradise-Flycatcher T. (rufiventer) smithii. Some authorities raise Fernando Po Swift Apus sladeniae but the African Bird Club treats this as a subspecies African Black Swift A. (barbatus) sladeniae.
