Description:

Epupa Falls.

Summary / Notes:

Starting at Omarunga Camp where we stayed, familiar friends such as Red-billed Firefinch, African Mourning Dove, Rosy-faced Lovebird, Grey Go-away-bird, African Palm-Swift, African Red-eyed Bulbul and African Pied Wagtail were to be seen. What then about the specials or hotties as we call them? They were thankfully also there. We were at Camp Site 5 which was perfect,rnbeing right next to the fence with Epupa Falls Camp and the river. The advantage of this camp site was that it was well sheltered by tall Makalani Palm trees whilst still giving clear views of the entire camping area. This allowed us to sit in the cool shade keeping a look out for birds. Even in May the temperatures were still well in the thirties. The birds also seemed to appreciate the cooler area. A frequent visitor to this area was the Rufous-tailed Palm-Thrush. It seemed to favour the fence and as the name suggests the Makalani Palm trees. Often it would first perch on the fence before hopping off to whatever palm tree took its fancy. It was also the first bird to wake usrnup in the morning with its distinctive melodious whistling.
