Some African birds.


As we are unable to get out and about at the moment, despite all the exciting bird news, we thought we'd share some of the bird photos we took back in 2005 in Kenya, this was before Elis had her super-duper Canon with a long lens.


Common Ostrich, a female in the Maasai Mara park

Hooded Vulture, seen along the highway



Grey Crowned Crane also in the Maasai Mara


Hadada Ibis, generally common wherever we went
White-browed Coucal, we snapped this while the rest were
photographing lions behind us.

Red-rumped Swallow at one of the hotels

Little Bee-eater on some dead acacia

Lappet-faced and Ruppell's Griffon Vultures around a lion
kill

Cape Robin-Chat, this bird was very tame allowing close
approach

Pied Kingfisher seen wherever there was water

Marabou Stork, also very common, even in town

Great White Pelicans with Grey Heron and Yellow-billed
Ducks at Lake Naivasha

Pink-backed Pelican also at Naivasha, but far less common

Helmeted Guineafowl seen in groups quite often

Kori Bustard, the only one we saw, what a bird!

Lesser Flamingoes, a classic image taken at Lake Nukuru
 
Blacksmith Lapwing, not many waders seen other than this
