Greater George – Groeneweide Forest Walks
About the Birding
Forest birding can be quite tedious with bursts of great excitement. This is because most of the birds move around in large bird parties for most of the year. The Greoneweide Forest is a classic forest birding experience in this respect, and one will often walk for long periods of time, not seeing more then the fluttering of a Lemon Dove or glimpses of a robin of some sort, and then, all of a sudden, the forest becomes alive with birds, with Knysna Turaco, Green Wood Hoopoe, Olive Woodpecker, Yellow-throated Woodland Warbler, Black-backed Puffback and many more.
About the Birding Site
Situated along a broad coastal plain with a backdrop of the Outeniqua Mountains, which overlook farmlands, wooded gorges, coastal forests, fynbos covered mountain passes and a section of the dry Klein Karoo providing a mosaic of birding habitats.
