MIGRATORY  BIRDS OF SOUTHERN AFRICA.  The  long distance travellers. The Korck Publishing Wall Poster “Newman’s Migratory Birds of Southern Africa – (Classic Edition)” 

  • One of the most compelling achievements in all of Nature is the annual migration of birds from the Northern Hemisphere to Southern Africa.

  • There are many yet unanswered mysteries of bird migration remaining despite the modern technological methods used  in tracking the long-distance migratory routes taken by some 83 species shown migrating from the northern hemisphere to  southern Africa. More than 200 species migrate from the northern hemisphere but most are rare vagrants, stragglers and  intra-Africa migrants (travelling within Africa) and are not shown on this poster.

  • Most birds follow routes where food sources are available eg coastlines, rivers and lakes.  Very few land birds undertake  long  ocean or desert crossings.  But the most amazing group of migrants are the diminutive warblers weighing only a few grams, migrating by night, navigating by the stars between northern Europe or Siberia to southern Africa where they spend the European winter months in our gardens returning 6 months later to breed.

  • Migration is truly a fascinating subject worthy of further study and this poster contains ground-breaking route maps for  each of the 83 birds shown created by Ken Newman especially for this publication. Each year an estimated 500 million birds  set off on their yearly migratory flights. A true wonder of nature and the endurance of such seemingly fragile creatures is quite remarkable.

  • Among the bird families represented on this poster are: avocet, bee-eater, buzzard, cuckoo, eagle, falcon,godwit, harrier, kestrel, kite, martin, plover, redshank, sandpiper,  shrike, tern, & warbler.
