Garden Birds of South Africa – Southern Boubou
A pictorial introduction to birds in and around a suburban South African garden with particular reference to the Western suburbs of Johannesburg and Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens.
I have attempted to source reference of the eggs and various egg colours wherever possible.
