GoBundu issues a weekly Wednesday Birding Blog Post. Each post will feature a bird that has been sighted by GoBundu on their travels around Southern Mozambique over the last 16 years, together with a link that takes you to the exact google earth location where the specific bird was sighted. If you are a keen birder keep an eye on the GoBundu Facebook page and Blog every Wednesday for specific locations where you can spot various birdlife.
