I took two birders out on a day trip last week. We visited Mariepskop. Long-crested Eagle, Gorgeous Bushshrike, Barrats Warbler, Orange Ground Thrush, Yellow-throated Woodland Warbler, Yellow-throated Longclaw, Dusky Indigobird, Yellow-streaked Greenbul and Dusky Flycatcher was just some of the birds we got. The beautiful forests and incredible view over the Blyde River Canyon make this a popular birders’ and photographers’ destination.
A pair of Bateleur. During territorial display Bateleurs will raise their folded wings before taking a bow while calling. This picture was taken on one of our recent birding trips through the Kruger National Park.
A true endemic to Southern Africa and a near endemic to South Africa ( a small population can be found in western Swaziland). The Bush Blackcap is high on the list of birders visiting Southern Africa. Join our KwaZulu-Natal birding tours to see this near-threatened species http://www.birdingandwildlifesafaris.com
The Drakensberg Rockjumper is one of the most sought after endemics in South Africa and occur in the Drakensberg mountains above 2000m. Join Birding and Wildlife Safaris, www.birdingandwildlifesafaris.com, on our birding trips through Kwazulu Natal to see this incredible bird.
