Bird of the day

20140726-213029.jpg As you know we have encountered some stunning birds in Nyungwe. Today’s most exciting was a black and white casqued hornbill (Bycanistes subcylindricus). It is clearly pleased to have found a nice ripe forest fruit.

We also spotted Blue Monkey and two groups of Mountain Monkey including this one.
