Bagge’s Black Bird is an unidentified bird reported near Lake Bujuku, south of Mount Speke in the Ruwenzori Range, Uganda.
Only one observation was made. Stephen Bagge’s guide recorded a number of these birds in 1898 at an altitude of 9,000 feet.
Bagge’s Black Bird is an unidentified bird of East Africa. Its physical descriptions state that it is a dark black color. It is nearly as large as a sheep; if real certainly among the largest, if not the largest, flying birds on record. It has an alarm call similar to the bellow of a bull.
It had only one significant sighting, as only one observation was ever recorded, so there is a possibility it was an oversized genetic outlier of a local raptor population.
