northern mountains of Somalia: Turdus ludoviciae is locally very common in mountain-top juniper Juniperus forest, and Carduelis johannis is found within juniper forest as well as in the open, rocky areas which lie adjacent to it (Ash and Miskell 1981). The extent of land within their altitudinal ranges is shown on the map by the 1,500-m contour, but within this area juniper forest is highly restricted and localized, and both of these species are known from no more than a handful of sites.
