Bird-watching Paradise

birds 007  The Timothy Centre is an ideal site for bird-watching, as the property includes a large protected wetland area and many natural  and planted trees that attract a large variety of Uganda’s birds.  At any time of day one can hear a multitude of bird calls and enjoy watching birds in flight, in the trees, and hopping through the grass. 
These are some of the commonly seen birds at Timothy Centre.
(Not being bird experts, we rely on our bird books to help us identify them and as far as we can tell these are their names!)
