Africam Birding Day

on Nkorho Streaming Cam


Keep your bird-books ready, your eyes and ears pealed, and help us ID as many birds as possible

The cam operators of Nkorho Cam will pay special attention to birds that day starting from 5.30 am CAT time.

For a little help with identifying the birdsounds, you can visit Sounds of Nkorho

Happy Birding !!!!

Hi All Birders Eye-wink

Did prepare myself by listening to the Kruger Park Birds CD and all the Nkorho recordings. Also the list from last time (nov 2006) I looked at. So all there is to do is done, but......

The last 2 days my health is not that well Sad

To be up at 4.30 am, or staying up till (more like me, the nightowl) is not the thing to try right now.

So to all

A Very Good Morning Song Made By Many Birds

Will read about it later.

I have to study hard.  for Fiery Necked Nightjar, I hear "Here Comes the Bride" and for Cape Turtle Dove, I hear "Good mor-ning, good mor-ning."

What are the specifics this year please?  What time will the Birding Zooming begin with Karin?  Will there be a separate Birding Day thread for postings and camera pics?
