Different habitats thus different bird species..
A passionate enthusiast, Thomas, trained as a fiel guide (FGASA Trail Guide level 1) permanently monitors the observed species in the area and updates on a daily basis the Dunes de Dovela’s bird list.
He will gladly accompain a budding or experienced birder for the quest of one of the 262 species of birds that inhabits the area. Rogerio and Nelson, the two guides of the dunes, trained by Thomas now also enyoy it and can help you to spot the Livingstone's Turaco or the Red-throated Twinspot or highlight the calls of the Yellow-rumped Tinkerbird or the Gorgeous Bushshrike which are all permanent residents of the coastal forest. A hike to the village will surely provides you with a good sighting of a Collared Palm Thrush, a Crowned Hornbill or a Dickinson’s Kestrel.
