Andrea has an energy that is hard to match. It's difficult to find anything in the bush that she doesn't get excited about, whether it's the molluscs in the Sand River, setting up camera traps all over the show to try and capture ...

Awesome blog Andrea. Interesting facts. Love the sound of the Woodlands in summer. I also can’t wait to hear the first call.

Just got back from the shores of Lake Erie in Ohio. Friday began what is called “the biggest week in American birding”. Species of warblers, orioles, thrushes, flycatchers, and the ruby throated hummingbird are what most people hope to see now.

Thank you Andrea interesting post as usual! Your passion for birds being contagious I’ve done some researchs. Two species present in pics on the post are observed in Switzerland during migrations: European Roller and European Bee-Eater. For you and the interested persons you will find the following links here and listen the birds sing:

Beautiful clarity in shots. Love the shot of the Woodland Fisher – makes our Kookaburra look quite dull!

Very interesting blog Andrea and I love the pictures! South Africa has some of the most spectacular birds. I’m in Toronto, Canada and we are just coming into our summer now…thank goodness, after the most brutal winter! Our Robins are the first bird we look for that comes back to us and signals the beginning of Spring each year. Our beautiful, hardy bright red Cardinals and stunning Blue Jays often stay with us through the winter each year and manage to survive by many bird feeder stations being set up and filled with seeds, peanuts and suet. Our Canada Geese used to migrate to warmer climates but more and more they are staying with us through the winters now.

Thanks so much for sharing Jill. I am so glad you notice the movements of the birds and enjoy viewing them.
