On a little trail around the camp or even from your cottage, what are the dead certs?

Sitting on the patio of the cottages birding at Biyamiti is very rewarding. We once stayed in unit 14 on the far end of the camp and the bird life was incredible. We had excellent birding around unit 9 as well on a different stay. There really were plenty species and summer brought with it loads of cuckoo species. Not all were seen in camp itself, but plenty were heard whilst in camp including African, Jacobin, Striped and Great Spotted. They call a lot at dawn and periodically throughout the day. We managed to see Klaas and Red Chested in camp and possibly a common cuckoo but it moved off too quickly.

Other than that, orange breasted bush shrike, firefinches, blue waxbill, arrow marked babbler, woodland and brown hooded KF, red billed wood hoopoes, natal spurfowl, crested francolin, red billed hornbill, various woodpeckers, grey go away bird, crested barbet, martial eagle and various water birds from the hide, glossy and violet backed starlings, pearl spotted and barred owlets...

The list goes on an on. Simply sitting on your patio with a good pair of binos will provide excellent birding!
