Enjoying wildlife

I am particularly enjoying seeing for the first time so many different bird species. The good thing is that you don’t have to try hard to spot interesting birds like the ones in the pictures. Aaron and I spent some time today trying to identify the many types of swifts, martins and swallows that were flying at KCCEM.  Identifying all of them will be the next challenge!

    I’m intrigued by the speckled mousebird, do you know any more about it?


      Mousebirds are social and endemic to Africa. Apparently they call each other regularly to ‘keep in touch’.

    Perhaps a Baglafecht Weaver (Ploceus baglafecht stuhlmani.
    Mousebirds are fun birds. They are birds to cartoons.

    Ugh that’s one dirty Budgie. Hope the trail wasn’t too arduous today.
