Welcome to Birding Southern Africa
Welcome to Birding Southern Africa, a website dedicated to all things birding in Southern Africa. This website seeks to provide birders in the area with valuable sources of information, offering articles, galleries, listing clubs and much more. It is the goal of the site, to develop into a source of both knowledge and enjoyment.
Our listing clubs allow members to update their listing totals at any time, simply by entering a number into their listing area. You will have the option of choosing a subregion list, as well as the ability to add additional listing clubs to your profile. Every time a user enters a value relating to a specific club, they will be added to the list total for that specific club. This means that your listing club position will be updated immediately each time you change the value.
The growth of listing challenges over the past few years got a lot of competitive blood flowing in the birding scene, and so we’ve created our own competition listings. Simply select the challenge that you are partaking in and add your total for the year and you will be added to the list rankings for that challenge. You can do edit both your challenge and listing club totals in your account > my lists page, found here.
Articles and News
Birding Southern Africa will look to bring news and articles related to birding, bird life and avian conservation news in the subregion. From interviews with guides and noteworthy birders, to insight into ongoing projects and what those projects seek to uncover.
We bring a direct stream of rarity updates from the South African Rare Bird News group, you can adjust your subscription settings or sign up if you aren’t already subscribed to the rarity alerts.
A feature which may take a while to roll out, the idea is to create a solid list of birding spots throughout the subregion, along with special that may be found there and more.
