Tarangire is a great birdwatching site with more than 500 species recorded. The swamps, tinged green year round, have the most breeding species in one habitat anywhere in the world. It also harbors several dry country bird species at the extremity of their range, like the pied babbler and vulturine guineafowl.The hills in the Tarangire National Park are the homelands of over 50 raptor species such as the Bateleur eagles, the Steppe Eagles (which migrate from Russia), the giant Lappet-faced Vultures and the tiny Pigmy Falcon. More ardent bird-lovers might keep an eye open for screeching flocks of the dazzlingly colourful yellow-collared lovebird, and the somewhat drabber rufous-tailed weaver and ashy starling – all endemic to the dry savannah of north-central Tanzania.
