Raptors with Aldo

A guide to 68 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


The course includes detailed presentations, links to recordings of each session which are available for 7 days, and permanent low-res pdfs at the end of the course for reference. 

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