trip was my first, and I suspect the one that will be of the greatest

However, I have decided NOT to do a standard Trip Report.  Pictures of
Madagascar birds are hard to come by, and I had quite a bit of luck with my
video camera - so I have used a Video "Snappy" to create, instead of a
report, a little web site called "Video Birding in Madagascar".  I think

site pages and a links page. the URL is:

web pages from South Africa without changing the URL), try one of the

Please let me know if you have any difficulties - I'm no expert at this!
