Okay, I admit it. I never really understood birders, or ornithology for that matter. Sitting for hours with binoculars? Cuckoo. (pun intended!)
That all changed when I went to Africa. The birds of East and South Africa with their unique shapes, bright, colorful plumage and full display mating dance will both amaze and inspire you. I know because it made me the world’s newest birder!! I am so hooked I even bought a Birds of South Africa book while touring that area so that I could check off all that I had seen. Yeah, it’s that addictive.
