Tanzania records over 1000 bird species with about 800 resident species and approximately 200 being migrants. Among these are 30 endemic bird species and 44 accidental species. Migratory birds from Europe and North Africa are sighted from November to April, so this makes this period the best for biding. The birds of Tanzania are ostriches, flamingos, guinea fowl, shoebill stork, turacos, hammerkop, egrets, kingfishers, African barbets, ashy sterling, hartlaub’s Turaco, black crake, kilombero weaver among others. The national parks in Tanzania are however good birding destinations throughout the year
