Bird life at Morley House
We are very lucky to have a wide variety of birdlife in our garden at Morley House. We are not ‘twitchers’, however we have spotted over 50 different species but I’m sure there are many more that we haven’t identified yet. Please let us know if you spot a new species for us.
So if you are enjoying a drink or a meal on the deck of our tea rooms, or relaxing on your private patio at your accommodation, have a look around to see which birds you can spot.
We have field guides and binoculars for you to borrow, please ask.
You could possibly see the following birds ……
Speckled mouse bird
Eastern Black-headed oriole
Greater double-collared sunbird
Southern double-collared sunbird
Southern masked weaver
African green pigeon
Southern red bishop
Green (red-billed) wood hoopoe
African paradise flycatcher

Cape turtle dove
Also keep an eye out for the troop of Vervet monkeys which pass through the garden.
