Kirindy Forest is a good place to see some Madagascar dry forest birds. White-breasted mesite, Giant and Coquerel’s coua, greater and lesser vasa parrot and flocks of grey-headed lovebird are just some of the interesting birds to look out for. When out on a night walk looking for nocturnal lemurs and reptiles, keep an eye out for owls such as white-browed owl and Madagascar scops owl.

Best Time for Bird Watching

Bird watching in Kirindy is good throughout the year and many birds can be seen at any time. However, October to April are the most productive bird-watching months. This is when birds are most vocal and active. If you prefer to avoid the worst of the rains (January to March), the best months would be October to December, March and April.
