Update from our Tanzania birding and mammal tour!

May 4, 2013

Callan and Deirdre are just back from our first Tanzania tour this season. The rains have been good over the last month, so everything is breeding and the birding and mammal sightings have been excellent (as well as butterflies, dragonflies and wildflowers!). Birding highlights have been Dwarf Bitterns, Karamoja Apalis, Golden-winged Sunbirds, Rosy-throated Longclaws, Hartlaub’s and Schalow’s Turacos, African Crowned Eagle on the nest, Bar-tailed Trogon, Beesley’s Lark, point-blank Martial Eagles, squabbles of vultures, and more.The short grass plains west of Ngorongoro crater are awash with wildebeest and their calves, and large numbers of predators, and some intrepid wildebeest are already forming columns and heading north. Our next Tanzania birding and mammal tour starts in a few days…
