The Mida Creek forest has a high diversity of mangrove species including Ceriops tagal, Rhizophora mucronata, Bruguiera gymnorrhiza, Avicennia marina and Sonneratia Alba. These provide refuge to a variety of both resident and migrant bird species. Over 100 species of bird are found in the cultivated gardens, shambas and bush. Commonly seen overhead is the Black Kite, while the Common Bulbul, White-Browed Coucal and Speckled Mousebird can be seen scuffling in the undergrowth.
Bright Yellow Canaries and Golden Palm Weavers flash in the bush, whilst the Lizard Buzzard and the Lilac Breasted Roller are often seen perched on poles and wires. The Coast is humid with mean annual temperatures ranging from 22-34 C.
