Abstract

The avifauna of this forest reserve has been surveyed, based on observations and mist-netting over a ten-year period.  We have recorded 175 species, of which 56 are considered "true" forest birds in this region.  These include four summer migrants, and four occasional visitors; the others are likely to be resident.  Four species of conservation concern, the Knysna Woodpecker, African Crowned Eagle, Lanner Falcon and Bush Blackcap probably nest within the protected area.
