The systematic inventory of the avifauna of the littoral of Lake Tanganyika was investigated by direct observation, counting on transects, on points of account and using Japanese nets, from the mouthpiece of the small Ruzizi to the east, to the mouthpiece of the Kakumba river westward, during the months of February to May 2016. The objective was to document the bird species that inhabit the coast of Lake Tanganyika in Uvira. For the identification and listing of birds we refer to the field guides of Zimmerman et al., (1999) and of Stevenson and Fanshawe (2002). The numbers of species, genera, families, orders as well as the specific richness of the sites were calculated. 34 species of birds grouped into 25 genera, belonging to 14 families and to 7 orders were counted. The site of the mouthpiece of little Ruzizi was richer in species with 25, while the mouthpiece of the Kakumba River had 17 species.
