Dear birding friends, 

as birdwatching is a relatively new and one of the fastest growing and a most popular pursuit, it attracts people of all ages around the world. There can hardly be a better place than southern Africa (Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland, Lesotho, South Africa) to nurture an interest in birds as it supports almost 1000 bird species, which is about 10 per cent of the world's entire bird. Taking birding to new heights, Hobby-Ornithologist Stefan Rust together with BirdsConTour represents some of the ontour bird sightings and several other interesting birding aspects to showcase the fun of birding, promote citizen science, highlight conservation, indicate where to view what birds and raise awareness of southern Africa's (sometimes international) birds and their habitats.

Total number of species identified:

81


02.02.'14  Farm Voigtland, Namibia  Lappet-faced Vulture (3) According to the tracks a cheetah caught a hartebeest calf. 3 Lappet-faced Vultures and about 20 White-backed Vultures cleaned the leftovers. Once again these avian scavengers proved their important ecological role in cleaning the veld of carcasses. Therefore the spread of diseases, for e.g. blowfly, is prevented.

02.02.'14  Picnic Area on B6 and crossing B6/M0033, Namibia  BirdsConTour for a cleaner Bird Habitat  Today BirdsConTour again cleaned the two picnic areas on the B6 between Windhoek and the Hosea Kutako International Airport and the crossing B6/M0033. Read more in Birds in Words www.birdscontour.blogspot.com article # 203.

02.02.’14  Farm Voigtland, 35 km east of Windhoek, Namibia  Bird & Birder Friendly Habitat  Farm Voigtland improved its wild bird support station by adding one more seed feeder and one more fruit feeder. As Mr. Stephan Voigts says, their guests enjoy having breakfast while viewing the wild birds at the feeding station in the garden.

04.02.'14  Allgemeine Zeitung, Namibia  Scaly-feathered Finch  Today an article was published in the Allgemeine Zeitung about the Scaly-feathered Finch. The same article is published in article nr. 204 in Birds in Words www.birdscontour.blogspot.com.

05.02.'14  Allgemeine Zeitung, Namibia  Letter to the editor  In this the issue of adventure tourism in Namibia is discussed. The trigger was a video that appeared in the “New York Times”. This same letter to the editor is published in article 190 in Birds in Words www.birdscontour.blogspot.com.

05.02.'14  Chobe N.P., Botswana  Southern Ground-Hornbill (2) Today Mrs. Ute Von Ludwiger had an interesting observation with two of these birds in the Chobe NP. A full description hereof is in article 206 in Birds in Words.

07.02.'14  Birds in Words  BirdsConTour Stickers  Promotion stickers with the BirdsConTour logo enables BirdsConTour to label its various promotional items and the bird products to be ever-present. The stickers can be viewed in article 207.

09.02.'14  Architecture for a better Bird Life  Car Mirror Bird Guard  How can one stop a bird attacking the side mirror of a car? BirdsConTour has the answer in article 208.


Enjoy Birding,

The Official Checklist of

BIRDS

in KAZA TFCA
(Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area)

Photos and text by Stefan Rust

(In terms of the Geneva Convention the copyright of these texts belong to Stefan Rust)


Spanning over 444 000 square kilometer, KAZA is the world’s largest protected conservation and tourism area (over half the size of France). It includes about 40 formally proclaimed national parks, game reserves, community conservancies and game management areas in Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia.
A key objective of the KAZA TFCA is to join fragmented wildlife habitats into an interconnected assortment of protected areas and trans-boundary wildlife corridors, which will facilitate and enhance the free movement of animals across international boundaries.
This transfrontier nature park is jointly supported by Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands together with SADC.


The geographical area for the checklist

The Official Checklist of BIRDS in KAZA TFCA will provide a handy record of birds you can expect to see, where in the region and it provides space for personal record of those birds you have seen.
