The bush is filled with birds. This is just a small sample of some of the colorful varieties. Since my cousin Sharon is an avid birder, I had helped identifying these. But the Lilacbreasted Roller Bird was so distinctive, I could identify it instantly after the first sighting
|Roller bird in flight|
|Helmeted Guinea fowl are common|
|This looks amazingly like our Western Meadowlark, but look at the|
claw. This is a Yellow-throat Longclaw.
|This magnificent bird is a Red-Billed Hornbill.|
|And this is a Yellow-Billed Hornbill.|
|A juvenile Bataleur and an adult Tawny Eagle argue over who gets the tree perch. The Eagle flew away.|
|Egyptian Geese are common and beautifully|
|On top is a Grey Go-Away-Bird, so named because of its |
call which sounds like it is saying, "goway"
Below the Go-away-bird are three green doves.
|Pearlspotted owl. This is a tiny little owl|
