South African Birds: Coast, Forest and Fynbos

Stock Photography By Adam Brooker

The extensive coastline of South Africa is primarily bordered by areas of forest or fynbos (fynbos is the heathland of the Western Cape containing exceptionally high biodiversity). Many of the birds in the forest and fynbos are highly adapted and are often endemic. Despite the extremely dynamic and rich coastal waters of South Africa, these waters contain many predators, and coastal birds need to be adapted to live in these dangerous waters.
