Fox's weaver, Uganda's only endemic declining
Fox’s Weaver Ploceus spekeoides is the only known endemic bird species in Uganda, restricted to wooded grasslands near swamps around Lira and Soroti districts. Primarily found in and around Lakes Bisina and Opeta, it possibly extends to main Lake Kyoga system. Its preferred habitat is papyrus-fringed lakes with nearby wooded grassland, a habitat common throughout Eastern Uganda. Fox’s Weaver is thought to be in decline basing on the lack of recent reliable sightings in areas where it is expected. Certainly, the last reliable sighting was made in January 2010 by a team of NatureUganda water-fowl counters on lakes Opeta and Bisina.
