New Book: Where to Watch Birds in Morocco

Where to Watch Birds in MoroccoWhere to Watch Birds in Morocco
by Patrick Bergier and Fedora Bergier

From Pelagic Publishing:

Morocco is a paradise for birdwatchers with its coasts, islands, wadis, plains, forests, mountains and deserts creating conditions that are often very different from those found in Europe. The richness of these habitats is clearly illustrated by the 452 species which have been recorded so far. This is a very short period in the dynamics of bird communities, but a very long period in a country that has developed so quickly. The Government is encouraging development and tourism, for example in the Atlantic West Sahara, which opens up great new sites for birdwatchers. The most important, and easily accessible of these new sites have been included in this second edition, and the original 15 sites have been increased to at least 50. This book is not a field guide to species, rather it a guide to the sites of key ornithological importance in Morocco. It contains information and detailed maps to enable you plan a visit and provide guidance when you are on your trip. In addition, the book provides an overview of travel in Morocco, information about climate and habitats, when to go, and a full checklist of species.

This book is a reprint of The Prion Birdwatchers’ Guide to Morocco (2nd Edition, 2003, ISBN: 1871104092).


If you’re planning a trip to Morocco, this looks to be a great resource. Besides the 58 sites described in detail, there is extensive information on how to get around the country and other touristy information. There are even checklists for mammals, dragonflies, and other animals (and birds, of course).
