Favorite Bird from Africa


The yellow billed hornbill.  There were many, many incredible and colorful birds in South Africa but I really like this one.  Its imposing bill and wonderful plumage are part of it, but those eyes are what makes the difference.  No matter where we found and photographed them, the eyes seemed to be peering into yours.  Hope you get that feeling from this pic…..

  5. There was a “hornbill convention” in the Kalahari this year (we went there in August). Never seen so many of them in one place. As you say, really interesting birds.
