Birds of Kruger National Park – a checklist

This Kruger National Park Birding Checklist is compiled from over 13 million SABAP2 records for South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland. The checklist includes a count of the number of times each species has been recorded in SABAP2 for both South Africa and Kruger National Park. This will provide users with a good indication of how frequently the species is seen in Kruger. As you will see from these observation counts, there are a number of species that have only been seen in Kruger a handfull of times. These species are classified as extreme vagrants and do not normally make up part of the KNP’s avifauna.

What is SABAP2 (aka Southern African Bird Atlas Project 2)?

“SABAP2 is a citizen science project that is driven by the energy of several hundred volunteers who are mapping the distribution of birds across several southern African countries. SABAP2 is the follow-up project to the Southern African Bird Atlas Project (SABAP1), which took place from 1987-1991. The second bird atlas project started on 1 July 2007 and is still growing. The project aims to map the distribution and relative abundance of birds in southern Africa and includes: South Africa, Lesotho, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique, eSwatini, Zimbabwe, Zambia. To gather data, volunteers select a geographical ‘pentad’ on a map and record all the bird species seen within a set time frame, in order of species seen. This information is uploaded to the SABAP2 database and is used for research and analysis by several different agencies, including the South African National Biodiversity Institute, BirdLife South Africa, as well as academics and students at various universities.” ADU

How did I generate this birding checklist from the SABAP2 data?

The Kruger National Park Birding Checklist compiled using SABAP2 data downloaded from (7 October 2019) GBIF Occurrence Download, all 13 million records of it! Working with this much data is not a simple task so I had to import the 6.7GB csv file into a database and manipulate the data from there.

The first step in compiling the lists was to count the number of SABAP2 observations of each species in South Africa. The second step was to count the number of SABAP2 observations for each species in Kruger National Park. The third step was to simply divide the number of Kruger observations by the number of South African observations to find the proportion of observations originating from Kruger. For example, SABAP2 has 129 records for Dickinson’s Kestrel and 128 of these records are from Kruger National Park.
