São Tomé and Príncipe - Birds

This gallery has images of birds which we found in São Tomé and Príncipe. Photography was generally quite difficult due to low lighting conditions especially in the montane rain forest at Cao Grande. Also keeping the camera dry in the drippy forest was a bit of a problem - the Lowepro AW bag certainly proved its worth in this respect. On the trip to Sete Pedras the pitching, rolling boat and my fear of imminent disaster made photography a secondary interest after that of just surviving the trip.
Like many remote island groups there is a high number of range restricted species to be found, indeed the islands are some times called the Galapagos of Africa because of the number of endemics species present. Some birds are endemic to only one of the islands.
