Merid Gabremichael

Merid Gabremichael, who lives with his family in Addis Ababa, is the most experienced bird guide in Ethiopia. He was born in Asmara in Eritrea while it was part of Ethiopia and he and his family had a hard time of it under Ethiopia's experiment with communism. He is a graduate in zoology of the University of Eastern Africa in Kenya. Merid has travelled extensively for birds in surrounding countries and is also co-author of Where to Watch Birds in Ethiopia. Merid has been guiding our Birdquest tours for over two decades and is without equal when it comes to bird finding knowledge in this large country. Never mind his bird-finding skills, his field breakfasts are legendary!
