Abdallah Mohamed Abdallah Ahmed Korssi, Dawi Musa Hamad


Abstract: This study was conducted in Zalingei area in two seasons 2013 and 2014, to study the Nest sites selection to some breeding species. Descriptive analysis methods was used, The data was collected on nests location, Nest height from ground, distance between the neighbor nests and tree height from ground were taken. The metric tape (50m) was used to measure the canopy cover (the measure of percentage of tree canopy near to the nest, four readings, one on each cardinal direction (North, East, South and West) [21]. The results, showed that Black-headed, Weaver Ploceuscucullatus built large numbers of nests per tree 81.5 nests/tree, and highest mean nest height 13.36m, whereas the Cliff chat Thamnolaeacinnamomeiventris had the lowest 1.28m. The Cliff chat Thamnolaeacinnamomeiventris had the longer distance between nests than that of other eight species in the study area. The Marabou Stork Leptoptiloscrumeniferus built their nests on the highest tree (16.53 m). The result, showed very high significant difference between canopy cover of the trees on which bird nests were observed (p=3.805E-71). The study was recommended to addition study in nest site selection for most breeding species in Zalingei area.
