Chirinda Apalis

Apalis chirindensis

The Chirinda apalis, scientifically known as Apalis chirindensis, is a small, elusive bird that graces the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe and Mozambique with its presence. This species is a member of the Cisticolidae family, known for their energetic flitting through the undergrowth.

Habitat

The Chirinda apalis is a bird of the forests, favoring the lush subtropical or tropical moist lowland forest as well as the cooler, misty realms of subtropical or tropical moist montane forest. These habitats provide the dense foliage and rich insect life that the Chirinda apalis relies upon.

Distribution

This bird is endemic to a specific region, being found only in the Eastern Highlands that straddle Zimbabwe and Mozambique. Its presence is a testament to the unique ecological conditions of this montane forest-grassland mosaic.

Conservation Status

The Chirinda apalis is currently classified as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. This status indicates that the species faces a risk of endangerment in the wild, necessitating conservation efforts to aid its survival.

Sense of Community
A great app, which is continually being improved. What really comes through is the passion of those behind the app. The sense of community is brilliant, so much help and support provided to new and/or in experienced birders.

Wonderful App
Birda is my go to app for keeping records of my bird sightings and sessions. It has fantastic information which is great at aiding identification. With all the updates that are coming in the new year, this app is something special.

Great app
I use this app all the time as it’s quick and easy to log individual sightings or whole birding sessions. It’s an excellent way to meet new people and the forum is full of really friendly people. The challenges are a great way to get involved and learn more about birds. Cannot recommend it enough!

Just what birding needs
We need more fun in birding, for years it has had a reputation for being up tight and stuffy and only perused by retirees and anoraks. Birda helps change that perception and firmly brings birding into the 21st century! Fun, interactive while still contributing to science and conservation. If you aren’t on it, why not??

I really enjoy using Birda, all sightings are recorded and photos can be added. There are monthly challenges which help to get you out to record your sightings. The Birda community are great and are happy to help with unidentified bird sightings. Suitable for all ages and experience!

Simply fantastic
I love this app, it puts so much fun into recording the birds I’ve seen and heard while I’m out and about. The interface is user-friendly and suitable for all ages. It’s great to collect badges and to review my “lists”.

We've been waiting for an App like this
Excellent! We've been waiting for an app like this! Thank you! It would be nice if you could assign additional birds to sessions later!

Great app for learning Birds
I’ve been using the app for a couple of months and love it....Someone said it’s like a real life Pokémon Go for birds. They’re not far off! It’s something that the family can do that gets you out and about. Well worth downloading no matter your age.
