Red-billed Quelea Quelea quelea

map
Red-billed Quelea, Range-change map between SABAP1 (1987-1991) and SABAP2 (2007-current).
Red, orange and yellow = cells with very large, large, and small relative decreases
Blue, dark green and light green = cells with very large, large and small relative increases.
Cells = quarter-degree grid cells; Only cells with at least 4 checklists in both SABAP1&2 shown. All cells had this species recorded in SABAP1 or in SABAP2 or in both (more about interpretation at Biodiversity Observations 7.62: 1-13).

In South Africa the Red-billed Quelea has many more grid cells with increases in reporting rate than cells showing decreases, between SABAP1 (1987-1991) and SABAP2 (2007-).

The points below match the points on the map above.

Areas with very large increases include:
1. Free State to southern KwaZulu-Natal.
2. Western part of the Eastern Cape.
3. Most of the Western Cape - this is a range expansion in recent decades.

Mixed results (increases and decreases):
4. Limpopo Province
5. North-West Province and the Northern Cape - mixed results due to poor coverage - more atlasing needed!

6. Lesotho - occurs at low density; SABAP2 coverage too low for meaningful results.
