Bird Life

 

A Large number of the trees and shrubs in the Hawaan and Umhlanga forest bear edible fruits or seeds most of the year round, so provide food for animals and birds. Thus there is a great wealth of bird life both within and on the outskirts of the forest, and over 100 diffent species have so far been observed , not counting those that inhabit the lagoon or adjacent beach.
