African Birds: The Bush

Stock Photography By Adam Brooker

The bush in Africa usually refers to lowveld or savanna and is often associated with game reserves. While the main attraction of game reserves is the large game animals, the rich and varied bird life is a mecca for birding enthusiasts, or twitchers. Many reserves boast over 300 species of birds, which are either resident or seasonal visitors, and include raptors, insect eaters, seed eaters, fruit eaters, wading birds, waterfowl and omnivores.
