Calling all Raptor enthusiasts
The course will be presented by well-known ornithologist, wildlife photographer and author, Ulrich Oberprieler. Titled “Celebrating raptors: Their diversity and identification”, the course will be based on Ulrich’s new Raptor Guide.
It will facilitate the identification and appreciation of this rather challenging group of birds. Participants will be given an overview of the Southern African raptor diversity and learn how to identify various species. Emphasis will thus not only be placed on raptor identification, but also their biology, behavior and conservation.
The biggest part of the course will be interactive lectures, as well as group activities and early morning walks to go birding.
Ulrich has authored and co-authored a number of books on birds over the years, including “Pocket-guide to Southern African Birds, A Guide to the Pipits of Southern Africa, A Guide to the Cisticolas of Southern Africa, A Guide to the Larks of Southern Africa, Southern African Garden Birds, The Raptor Guide for Southern Africa and the Bird Guide of Southern Africa”.
Organised by the Honorary Rangers at Mountain Zebra National Park, the weekend costs R450 per person and includes teas, Friday night dinner and Saturday lunch. Space is limited, and only the first 40 bookings can be accommodated.
The course fee does not include accommodation and this can be booked through SANParks on (012) 428 9111 or (041) 583 2030, via e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org or online at www.sanparks.org/tourism/bookings/
