Apalis flavigularis

The Yellow-throated Apalis is a species of bird in the Cisticolidae family. It is endemic to Malawi.

The Apalis flavigularis is classified as Endangered (EN), considered to be facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild.

Range & population Apalis flavigularis is restricted to three massifs (Mt Mulanje, Mt Zomba, Mt Malosa) in south-east Malawi, east of the Nyasa-Shire Rift5. In 1983, it was considered common within its habitat7. It has been suggested that it may occur on Mt Chiperone in adjacent Mozambique11, but there are no records from this vicinity3 and the taxon does not occur on similar, smaller mountains in Malawi that are nearer the known range, implying that it is unlikely to occur there10.

Apalis Apalis flavigularis) and one Vulnerable (White-winged Apalis Apalis chariessa) (BirdLife International 2004). Several additional species (e.g. Eastern Bronze-naped Pigeon Columba delegorguei and Grey Cuckooshrike Coracina caesia; Dowsett-Lemaire and Dowsett 2006) face local extinction in Malawi. While such destruction advances in Malawi, populations of these species in neighbouring northern Mozambique are likely to become increasingly important. Although deforestation is also a major concern in Mozambique (Parker 2001), it has occurred at a slower rate than in Malawi. More
