Today the 29th we took a tour to Parc Natl des Oiseaux du Djoudj , one of their World Heritage bird estuaries...it was a one hour drive to the boat dock where some 20+ other tourists and we 4 loaded into a smallish boat. Too early for many birds migrating as Bon had said-most come Dec/Jan -but we saw lots of heron-green,purple,& night-,fish eagle,lesser cormorant,bee eaters,kingfisher,jacuna, buzzard, some kind of geese, stilts, & egrets. Plus, the resident flock of white pelicans was worth the trip for me just to see them!
