Makanaga Birding Site Uganda

The Makanaga birding site in Uganda is the most recent addition to the list of known Shoebill locations in Uganda. Only Zambia, South Sudan, and Uganda are home to Shoebills. With a 95% likelihood of spotting this bird, Uganda has the highest possibility of any of the specified countries. We are happy that another site has been added to the list of locations in Uganda where one can view the Shoebill.

A wetland bay on Lake Victoria, Makanaga birding site Uganda is located near Kamengo Trading Centre along the Kampala Masaka route. It takes around one hour to drive from Kampala to Makanaga Wetland through communities, where one can observe people carrying about their daily lives. But along the route, it is also obvious that there is a population expansion, which is undoubtedly causing deforestation and wetland encroachment.

For birdwatchers interested in the critically endangered Shoebill and other waterfowl, this spot is an ideal destination. I suggest this website to people who aren’t very interested in birds but are curious in the shoebill. Numerous bird species nest in and frequent the nearby woodland in search of food. Additionally, developed and agricultural areas are home to birds and offer excellent locations for bird watching at Makanaga Birding Site, Uganda.

The following are some birds to watch out for: African Pied Hornbill, Black-and-White Casqued Hornbill, Crowned Hornbill, Angola Swallow, Grosbeak weaver, Weyns weaver, Olive-bellied Sunbird, Grey-rumped Swallow, Blue-breasted Bee-eater, Madagascar Bee-eater, African Jacana, Yellow-billed Duck, Knob-billed Ducks, Grey-headed Gulls, Spur-winged Lapwing, Ruff, Squacco Heron, Spur-winged tilt, Pied King Fisher, among others
