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 !!!!
