This study assessed the species composition, relative abundance and vegetation of avian found in grassland habitats. Two transect lines was established Transect A and Transect B. A total of 15 Orders, 30 families and 73 species were observed and recorded at the study area. Family Nectariniidae had the highest number of bird species (ten species) and (nine species) along Transect A and Transect B respectively. followed by Estrildidae (six species) along Transcet A and Ploceidae (five species) along Transect B.

Cisticolidae and Sylviidae had the lowest number of species 0.04 % (N=3). Chrysobalnus icaco and Syzygium owariense were widely distributed in the habitat and the major grasses were Andropogon gayanus and Anadelphia afzeliana.
