Southern Africa & Madagascar Birdfinder
Published: April 2006
Southern African birdfinder – where to find over 1400 bird species from South Africa to Zambia, is the essential companion to all local bird field guides.
It fills a gap in the market for a guide to the region’s top birding spots and to finding southern Africa and Madagascar’s most desirable birds. After an introduction to birding in the region, the authors outline and describe 39 key bird routes and more than 330 birding sites across South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Madagascar and the little-documented but increasingly popular areas of Angola, Mozambique, Zambia and Malawi.
Sites include practical details of access, best times to visit, habitat diversity and the birds that occur in it, and general natural history; the more important sites feature a detailed map.
