Trip report: Ghana, Picathartes and Plover (March 2013) by Tropical Birding

Guided by Ken Behrens.

This tour continued in the tradition of Tropical Birding’s highly successful Ghana tours. We had fabulous experiences with Picathartes and Egyptian Plover, and a dazzling array of other colorful and fascinating birds including White-throated Francolin, Standard-winged Nightjar, Bearded Barbet, Black and Red-throated Bee-eaters, Rufous-sided Broadbill, Black Dwarf Hornbill, Pied-winged Swallow, and Red-fronted Antpecker. We racked up 445 bird species and 23 mammals. Perhaps most importantly, everybody on the tour thoroughly enjoyed themselves! From the southern coast to the dry northern savannahs, we enjoyed good company, surprisingly excellent Ghanain food, and wonderful birding.
