For the Bird Watchers, Windsor is facilitated by the indigenous forest, which acts as a home to many bird species. Birds often perch on branches of the tall trees while others skulk, piping and preening on the undergrowth vegetation. Before venturing into the forest, our resident ornithologist will give you a briefing on what to expect. In a day this event is preferable from 6:30 am - 9:00 am and later in the evening at around 3.30 – 6.30 PM.
Some of the bird life you will spot right from the start are the Blacksmith Prorer, Fiscal Shrike, Speckled mousebird and the Egyptian geese while in the forest you will find Cormorants, Herons, White pelicans, African fish eagle among others.
The only endemic species we have at Windsor is the speckled mousebird, which nests at the main entrance to the hotel. Also the Hertrab Turaco, which migrates to the forest within the months of, May – June and happens to be quite a noisy bird.
