Welcome to the South Africa Listers’ Club!
We are a community of over 500 birders that actively celebrate and seek out South Africa’s avian gems. The Club leaderboard is published below.
Birds of South Africa
South Africa has an incredible diversity of birds – more than 870 species have been recorded in the country which is 8% of all birds worldwide. 18 are true endemics, meaning they only occur in South Africa. A further 31 species are near endemics as most of their distribution falls within South Africa. We use the BirdLife South Africa National Checklist for the purposes of this club.
