Bird List Of Millstream Farm's Birds In Mpumalanga South Africa

Birding In Millstream

Millstream Farm is designed as a trout fishing paradise but if you happen to have an interest in birds it is even more of an odyssey. On my journeys all over the farm I have seen some amazing bird species and all are recorded in this bird checklist of Millstream. On my travels I have seen and confirmed that there are at least 229 birds found on the farm, maybe not at all at the same time. In fact some of the birds I have seen are so rare in the area that they have probably just been blown off course. Millstream Farm in South Africa, is in the Mpumalanga province and is was of the best fly fishing destinations on the Highveld. The summer months here are a birders dream and all sorts of raptors, ground nesting birds, tree birds and of course water birds can be seen here. There are a number of walks within Millstream where you can see all sorts of different habitats and thus all sorts of species of birds. There is even a very nice bird hide on the dam Wordsworth Water where I once saw a Black Shouldered Kite kill a rodent... Here is the list:
