Common Kenyan birds are easily identified by color, behavior, size or habitat. Certainly what is considered as a common bird in one area might for all purposes be vulnerable in another.


Also birds species may be available in a particular season: for example Widowbirds will be much easier to find in grasslands with mature seeds. Similarly Sunbirds are up and active with new flowers and European migrants are on the African hinterland as they escape the harsh winter.


Some waterbirds



Egyptian Goose



Greater Flamingo



Sacred Ibis



Pink-backed Pelican



The Hamerkop, the king of the birds



Black-winged Stilt


The feeding habits of the birds also matters and even in localized areas species will pick their own place and space. E.g. a Wooly-necked stork will be in a swamp while a Red-capped Lark will be in the open grassland surrounding the swamp.


For birders on a Kenya bird watching holiday, an online picture guide for the common species likely to be found in Kenya is good for planning the birding holiday.



Starlings



Greater Blue-eared Starling



Superb Starling



Hildebrandt Starling



Bristle-crowned Starling


For an enriching bird watching experience, take as much time enjoying the easy to find local birds as you will when spotting the hard to get endemics.


Definitely the easily found birds species in Kenya are too numerous to mention on this page but keep your eyes open (and ears tuned) for Bee-eaters, Kingfishers, Cormorants, Weavers, Herons, Egrets and many others.


Waxbills, Estrildids and Relatives



Grey-headed Silverbill



Black-cheeked Waxbill



Red-billed Firefinch
