Raptors with Aldo

A guide to 60 South African raptors

Raptors are difficult. A typical birding course is a series of species

images and ID characters that can overload the senses and drain

the joy out of birding!

Our course emphasizes process against detail; principles versus

individual species.

We use our successful 2 step identification protocols, which

combined with comparative work, games and self identification

exercises  (repetitive to embed memory) turns a daunting task,

turns into an enjoyable session of learning.

Course Price

R375 for all 3 sessions for one person, R525 for 2 people or more.

For pensioners the cost is R275 for one person and R375

for 2 or more. 


Course outline

 Three 75-90 minute sessions as shown below:


Session 1. Principles of raptor ID – falcons & kestrels
Session 2. Vultures and eagles
Session 3. Buzzards, Goshawks, Harriers and other fantastic raptors


We will send you the course material as pdfs at the end of the 

course to allow review of material. If you miss a session, you

can view a recording, which will be available for 6 days after

the session.

I offer an interactive and relaxed experience in small groups which supports learning.
