Finding Birds in Morocco: the deserts
Introduces you to the best desert birdwatching sites in Morocco from Taroudannt to Merzouga and gives you a real 'feel' for what it's like to go birding there.
More sites - covers no fewer than 17 birding sites including specific locations for species such as Scrub Warbler, Desert Sparrow, Mourning Wheatear, Saharan Olivaceous Warbler, Egyptian Nightjar, Crowned Sandgrouse and Pharaoh Eagle Owl.
Sit back and enjoy footage of almost 50 species, including many of the specialities, all filmed using high-definition digital video cameras
Find out more about the sites and their birds, including what to listen for, to help you find more species.
Travel into the deserts of Morocco with birder Dave Gosney as he shows you exactly how to find many of the most sought-after species. Watch footage of the birds themselves and listen as Dave explains how to recognise them by their songs and calls.
There's particularly helpful coverage of how to separate Thekla and Crested Larks and Saharan and Western Olivaceous Warblers.
"What the viewer will find most useful are the hints and tips that Dave gives - for example, the precise roosting hole for a Pharaoh Eagle Owl on a large cliff face and strategies of how to locate Egyptian Nightjars."
