on Birding Big Year 2024!

So many colourful and Interesting species! I’d go for a contest on the beach too, combining birding and scuba diving, which is my favourite activity when possible! Have you ever filmed black-tailed widowbirds? They are such beautiful and amazing creatures that exhibit a spectacular courting behaviour.

Yes, there are so many different species and no matter where you are there are likely to be birds. Sadly, I am yet to film any Widowbirds but maybe one day.

Crazy, wonderful, Sean. I’ve never been a birder until I came to Londolozi. While I continue to appreciate the big guys, I’ve begun to look for the little fellas, too. And – Oy – who can forget the plants and trees?

Birding is a fantastic hobby to have and the birding here is great. Of course, we can’t forget everything else, but rather just enjoy birding alongside them all.

I remember my first visit to Londolozi, I wrote in the guest book, “Came for the leopards, stayed for the birds.” This collection reminds me why!

I am glad to hear that, hopefully we can enjoy some great birding this year.

Sean, absolutely beautiful pictures of the birds of South Africa. Thanks for sharing the pictures and the competition as it intensifies over the next year. Can hardly wait to see who is crowned the winner.

I think it is going to be a lot of fun over the year as the competition intensifies. Will reveal the winner in due course.

Hi Sean, I am excited to see the foto’s of the birds that you are going to see and note on your app. Hopefully we will learn more about birds and still keep on seeing the magnificent wild animals at Londolozi. I am sure all the Rangers are up for the fierce challenge. Good luck to all Rangers involved. I must get myself a long lens to beable to take better bird foto’s.

Yes, we will certainly not compromise on the other wildlife, the birding will just be an add-on as we are driving around.

Fantastic bird photos!

Thanks, Christa.

Amazing photography. One of the hard things about being in Minnesota is the very restricted number of species of birds. I long for the rich, diversity of the bush veld! Thank you for the recommendation of Bindo Birding Ap.

You are most welcome. Hopefully we will see you back here soon then.

Let the challenge go forth and may you all discover many new avian species, as well as your favorites that reside with the Londolozi borders. I’ll look forward to future posts that include images and descriptions! Good luck everyone!!

Thank you so much, Denise.

Best of luck, and looking forward to some exotic species

Thanks so much, Ian. We will need it given the lads we are up against and their ability to get further afield to do some birding.
