African migratory bird count, January 2014

This video is called Moroccan Birds Mini Documentary.

Translated from BirdLife in the Netherlands:

Morocco is also a participant in Flyway bird count

Morocco is also a participant in the simultaneous counting of wading birds along the Atlantic Flyway route, which will be in January 2014. The census is needed to understand the problems for wading birds along their route from Greenland to Africa.

Morocco is of great importance for migrating wading birds. There are many areas where waders have an interim pause before they continue south flying to their wintering areas along the coast.

Besides Morocco also Mauritania, Senegal, Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Cape Verde will participate in the first West African simultaneous count since eight years. The counts are needed to increase understanding wintering wading birds in West Africa better.
