Ivory Coast: April 19th -June 24th 2000

  • From April 19 through June 24 2000, I spent a little more than 2 months in the République de Côte d'Ivoire. Most of that time (May 1 through June 18) was spent at the Biological Research Camp of the University of Wuerzburg (Germany) in the Parc National de la Comoé, where I did some research work on the general differences of the vocalizations of the birds to be found in the different microhabitats within the park...Frank Rheindt reports and Minnattallah Boutros takes the Photographs, in this excellent report.
