Birds of Africa
Africa, the place where we learned to recognise (and love) our first birds, the area where we have spotted and photographed most birds (more than 700!).
On this page, we have listed the birds in order of how they appear in our bird book (Birds of Africa – south of the Sahara). To keep similar birds together, but make sure the galleries don’t become too large, we have combined our African sightings into 14 groups. In this, we are following the order in which they appear and are grouped in that book.
However, as the birds of Madagascar and the Seychelles are not included in the ‘Birds of Africa – south of the Sahara’ book, we have added one additional group where we have listed the birds we have seen there.
Click on the heading where it describes which birds are in the group to open up the bird pictures. Clicking on another group will automatically close the previous group.
We've seen 58 birds in this group. Despite living on the coast of Tanzania for 3 years, we didn't do very well in adding sea birds to the list...
