Before coming to South Africa I was barely a birder, and was one of those people who heard “Rockjumper” and thought “oh neat! I’m studying penguins!”. No offence to the Rockhopper’s, but boy am I glad I was wrong. The Cape Rockjumper just may be the most magical bird on the planet, and they will always be my personal favourite bird. Here I will do my best to tell you why –– I’ll take you on a brief tour of the Rockjumper’s fascinating taxonomic history, how they cope with the heat, what they are like as parents, why group-living territorial birds are just the best, and probably a bit of general Fynbos-love in the process.
