Endemic bird to Madagascar
Oiseaux de Madagascar

With its vast territory, the Island of Madagascar is a sanctuary for both amateurs and ornithologists.

The birdlife of Madagascar is full of more than 280 species of birds, admittedly this diversity is relatively low compared to other tropical countries but the endemic rate is really important with more than 100 endemic species. Understanding the natural history of birds is also one of the reasons to visit the wonderful red island. An example is the famous elephant bird which is part of an extinct fauna.

Many of the birds' natural surroundings are worth visiting to see their life in the wild and also to understand their daily activities.
