Sinbad still in Madagascar

Hi all,

still no signs for migratory activity of Sinbad. It is still staying in the very same region and shows no signs of restlessness, i.e. enlarging the area or moving longer distances from one location to the other. Now the question arises, if Sinbad will leave Madagascar at all? Maybe it stays there until the next wet season? Latest observations of Sooties in Madagascar are of 14th of May (F. Hawkins pers. comm.), so this will be a late bird, it if starts migrating only now....


  1. When are the rainy seasons in Madagascar?

  2. hi, it is from November until April although already in April it starts to become drier.
