After our return from Senegal we have a frist excursion with pupils from Assomada High School.
We make a little birding walk to the lagoon.
First they must learn to adjust their binoculars.
Then they see the first birds: Turnstone and Plovers and a Sanderling
Whitecrowned sparrowlark comes to the lagoon to drink.
some rare migrants: A Norther Pintail. Spießente (Anas acuta)
Theses two birds were not easy to identify.
Two Blackwinged stilts (Himantopus h.) and (I think) a Ruff (Kampfläufer, Philomachus pugnas)
and a Sanderling (Calidris alba)
The Passerinho, Halcyon leucocephala.
Here female and male of the endemic Jago Sparrow.
