The biology and utilization of helmeted guinea fowl numida meleagris galeata 1. the habitat and distribution of guinea fowl in the kainji lake basin area nigeria



African Journal of Ecology 22(1): 1-6



The main characteristics of guinea fowl feeding habitat consist of a rich herb-grass species layer growing luxuriantly in the feeding sites where the cation minerals as well as N levels of the soils are high. The nesting sites are located under canopies of bushes, and the trees are used as roosting sites. Birds dusted in sandy soils along the river beds during the dry season and also in pulverized soils in which high mineral contents suggest that past burning of wood had taken place. The average density of guineafowl within the Kainji Lake National Park is between 4.64 .+-. 4.29 and 9.13 .+-. 12.66 km-2. In the Park the average home-range size was estimated between 0.79 and 1.77 km2 but outside the Park, particularly in the vicinity of farmlands and villages home-ranges, it varied between 7.55 and 21.24 km2.
