124 bird species have been recorded at the Kriegershoek Nature Reserve of which 22 bird species are endemic to Southern Africa. Their names (English, Afrikaans & Scientific) are up to date according to the “Sasol Birds of Southern Africa” Forth Edition (2011). The English names have been adjusted in such a way that the second part of the bird’s name, describing to which group it belongs, has been placed in front of the rest of the birds name; so as to make the list more user friendly. For example, the Bar-throated Apalis has been written as: Apalis, Bar-throated. Endemic birds (to Southern Africa) have been listed in bold.
