According to the highly acclaimed Roberts birds of Southern Africa sixth edition there are no less than 89 species of finches in this beautiful part of the African continent. It may even be the widest variety of finches that one will see anywhere in the world. Chris Krog must rank as one of the finest bird photographers in South Africa and his talent to capture the mood, the colour and birds personality is simply unbelievable. Fortunately non of the above shown finches are listed as threatened

And in particular the work that we are now doing on the Orange-breasted Waxbill, Africa’s smallest finch,which now needs conservation help
