BIRDS OF THE WESTERN CAPE PHOTO GALLERY.

This photo gallery represents all the species that occur in the geographical boundaries of the Western Cape, currently over 500 species.
This includes resident, migrant, rare and vagrant species.
This geographic region contains many varied habitats and as such, some species may be common in a particular habitat, but absent from others.

Species are alpha indexed in separate pages by English family names. A-B, C, D-E etc. 

The gallery here covers species families Q-R. As we develop and finish other families, separate pages will be added.

Click on the relevant tab ie: ‘R’ = Raven.
