The results of a study of breeding and non-breeding bird populations in the bush savanna ecosystem of northern Senegal (16.degree. 13N-15.degree. 06W) were presented. Observations were made by monthly censuses and bi-monthly searches for nests in a 25 ha quadrat, continuously for 8 yr (1969-1976). A total of 112 spp. of which 83 Ethiopian and 29 Palearctic migrants (Accipitridae and Falconidae excluded) were found. Bird density and biomass were studied.
