Indoor Talk: Birding in Madagascar
22nd December, 2015
Madagascar is the world's fourth largest island. At 600,000 km2, it is almost twice the size of Malaysia and 800 times as big as Singapore.
Despite its size, it has only about 265 bird species. Its 3 main climatic zones, namely, the eastern rainforest, the southern spiny bush and the western deciduous forest, however, holds 120 endemic species and 5 endemic families. It is truly a bird-watcher's paradise.
