   ›      ›   Cream-coloured courser - Cursorius cursor Photos

The cream-coloured courser (Cursorius cursor) belongs to the family Glareolidae.

These cream-coloured courser species have an extremely large range. However, there is steady decline in the range size as well as severe fragmentation of the habitats. The population trend appears to be declining. The global population size has not been estimated after the recent taxonomic splits.

Though the rate of decline of cream-coloured courser population is not presently alarming, conservation efforts are required to stem the decline. There is severe habitat alteration, soil loss and desertification due to military manoeuvres and activities, increase in off-road tourist vehicle movement, development of tourist resorts and the building of new roads.


The cream-coloured courser species are getting impacted by overgrazing in their habitats. The introduced mammals are preying on the birds. There is still illegal hunting and egg-collection is going on. There are instances of these birds colliding with power lines. A committed and dedicated action plan and its early implementation is necessary.
