THE AUTHORS

Saartjie Kidson
Co-author of Spotterís Guide to Birds series.

Herman van Niekerk
Writer of 11 books and more than 300 articles.
Saartjie Kidson and Herman van Niekerk, the authors, in 2003 discovered a shortcoming in local bird guides and immediately started to work on a new series of innovative bird guides. Their knowledge, love of nature and involvement in bird watching and nature conservation ideally equipped them for such a comprehensive project. Two popular regional bird guides, Spotterís guide to birds of the Bushveld and Spotterís guide to birds of the Lowveld, were completed with accompanying, value-adding DVDís and a bird call CD. Then the giant step was taken to produce a national bird guide based on the same concept. Advanced technology, however, now made it possible to replace the separate DVDís with the Callfinderģ greatly enhancing the accessibility of bird calls. A first for South Africa.

The authors are convinced that bird watching in South Africa will henceforth change substantially and that an entire new generation of young, technologically minded people will become dedicated bird watchers.

Saartjie was, amongst others, also a founder member of the Naboomspruit Bird Club and Herman of Friends of Nylsvley. Herman also published various other books.
