Socotra has ten endemic birds
The tenth endemic bird on Socotra has been formally named Socotra Buzzard Buteo socotraensis. It is the rarest of all Socotri endemic birds.
The resident, short-winged Buteo population on Socotra has been known for over 110 years. However only now it has been described after extensive studies and got its formal name.
A paper on taxonomic status of the Socotra Buzzard written by Richard Porter and Guy Mc Kirwan can be downloaded from the Archive in the Environment Protection section.
