Abstract: 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.

The family Pycnonotidae had the highest number of birds in the study area with 21.06 % (N=1516) followed by Columbidae 19.38 % (N=1395). 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.
