Deforestation leads to the fragmentation of original forests into several forest portions. Indeed, the fragmentation of forests is one of the major threats to biodiversity. This study aims for the first time to determine birds diversity in the Bouaflé Classified Forest (BCF) for the assessment of its state of conservation. The ornithological data were collected using listening points, Japanese net capture and recapture and fixed-term census along the linear transects with five-minute stopping points on the stations listening. These methods allowed us to identify 150 species of birds from 50 families of 18 orders. Three of these species are on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. The BCF is dominated by 82% resident species and 37,33 % open species. This site hosts two species endemic to the Sudano-Guinean savannah biomes and 31 other species, from the Guinean-Congolese forests.
