Site description The Tillabéri roost occupies a Eucalyptus woodlot in an area of irrigated rice on the flood-plain of the Niger river near Daikaina, just east of Tillabéri. The woodlot is managed by the irrigation authority, ONAHA (Office National des Aménagements Hydro-Agricoles). Some of the trees were felled in early 1997 and, as a result, the birds temporarily moved to a wooded area 1.0–1.5 km to the south. More recently, however, the birds have moved back to the woodlot.
