Ulrich Oberprieler is the author of the definitive “Raptor Guide of Southern Africa” and is well-known for his excellent courses.

The focus of this course is on the ABC of raptor identification, a basic skill which will allow you to identify virtually any bird of prey in Southern Africa. This skill will not only be emphasised during the lectures but will be confirmed during the practical activities. Additional information will be discussed regarding their lifestyles, hunting and breeding behaviour, migratory patterns as well as conservation concerns. Join us for this unique, informative yet entertaining course facilitated by Ulrich Oberprieler.
