Elusive and skittish African Black Duck or Black-crowned Night-Heron might be flushed from well vegetated river banks. While more open sections may produce Half-collared Kingfisher and Hamerkop.

Riverine forest and

subtropical thicket

Small patches of forest appear along our rivers consisting mainly of tall evergreen trees like yellowwoods and ironwoods. Shrubs, lianas, epiphytes and herbs are common below the canopy. Subtropical thicket is the dominant vegetation type in the Albany District, extending down the coast and up our river valleys. The enormous diversity found here can be attributed to the meeting of several habitats. In the quiet upper reaches of the rivers with plenty of overhanging vegetation you may strike it lucky with  sightings of sought after species like:   

African Finfoot

This bird is notorious for its secretive behaviour.  African Finfoot chick Newly hatched young are alert with fully opened eyes and able to sit up strongly. This fellow still has the egg-tooth in place at the tip of the bill. It was used to crack open the shell prior to hatching.
