This CD offers the songs and calls of 99 species of birds of Southern Africa. Very suitable for birdwatchers looking for birds which are often more easily sought by sound than by sight. The primary consideration for species inclusion of this CD is always based on the importance of knowledge of sound in the discovery and verification of birds. Secondary to this is the usefulness of including species that have a strong propensity for common or constant vocalization.
This sprawling nation covering the bottom of exotic Africa has a wonderful mix of the spectacular and the cryptic, where one can marvel to the booming of a Southern Ground-Hornbill or savour the aerial ticking of a Cloud Cisticola. There is something for every level of birding enthusiast, and a wonderful infrastructure of high-end accommodations, roads, and top-notch birding guides and resources make it a total pleasure for birders who have all too often associated bug-infested huts and perilous cuisine with their most memorable birding encounters.
