id issues

As time progresses, we hope to build up a relatively comprehensive database of difficult identification issues. These pages will aim to provide information on separating some of the more difficult species that occur in Southern Africa. Obviously, it will be extremely difficult to cover absolutely everything here, but we hope that some of these articles may be of use to you.

Please follow the links below to go to the various identification texts.

  • separating Wandering and Royal Albatrosses

  • separating "ringtail" Montagu's and Pallid Harriers

  • separating Greater and Lesser Sand Plovers
