Abstract EN

The study of marine and coastal birds in the Lebanon recorded 75 species along the shore line of Lebanon and for a distance of 7 kms offshore.

Of those species, 35 are seabird species, 38 marine or seawater/freshwater coastal birds, and 2 waterbird species wintering on the archipelagoes of Mina/Tripoli in North Lebanon (Grey Heron and Little Egret) with apparently much affinity to seawater in the winter season.

This study highlighted 3 globally threatened species (Leach’s Storm Petrel Hydrobates leucorhoa [Vulnerable], Mediterranean Yelkouan Shearwater Puffinus yelkouan [Vulnerable], and Dalmatian Pelican Pelecanus crispus [Vulnerable]), underlined 7 globally Near Threatened avian species, pointed out to 3 species that may be submitted for reconsideration by the “Lebanon Bird Record Committee” (LBRC) at LCNRS; and updated the data of 9 species of high significance from the past studies, of which, 2 species are upgraded from vagrants to winter visitors/passage migrants, one to passage migrant and one to winter visitor..

Regarding the final phenological statuses of species, one is resident breeding, one is summer breeding, 3 are formerly bred, one extirpated (extinct) from Lebanon 31 are passage migrant/winter visitors, 25 passage migrants only, 2 winter visitors and 14 vagrant species.
