Has anyone done a Birding Tour to Madagascar?

If so, how many of the 110 endemics did you see and who did you tour with?

I didn't do a focused "birdwatching tour". But on my way I took pictures of some birds I can share here.

Some of them I didn't identificate, so the help of you all can be really appreciated.

All of the pics have been taken in July 2015.



Vakona Reserve - ?????



Andasibe-Mantadia NP - ?????



Andasibe-Mantadia NP - Red-fronted coua



Andasibe-Mantadia NP - Souimanga sunbird



Andasibe-Mantadia NP - Madagascan wagtail



Andasibe-Mantadia NP - Crested drongo



Andasibe-Mantadia NP - Malagasy kingfisher



Highlands - ehheheheh



Arboretum Antsokay - Red-capped coua



Arboretum Antsokay - Madagascan hoopoe



Ambatomilo - Madagascan magpie-robin



Ambatomilo - Malagasy kestrel



Reniala Reserve - Running coua


Hope this can be interesting for someone. I was not a birder, so these pictures are just lucky shots or the birds that showed up close and deserved a picture  :D


I found the names once at home surfing the web and looking at the most similar picture. Maybe there are some errors (maybe in the couas?). I still have no idea about the first 2 birds.
