In honor of flamingos I’m doing the birds of Amboseli separately. I didn’t realize I would see flamingos in the wild in any of these places. But here they are!
spoonbill, of course
Yellow billed storks
Black winged stilt
Lilac breasted roller. I am always stunned by the variety of colors in this little bird and how they all blend together.
There are other pictures of the secretary bird that are much closer but I included this so you can see just how big this bird is.
White necked raven. Along with the pied crows they came to visit at breakfast each morning.
little gray headed kingfisher
And the exquisite tiny malachite kingfisher!
Dontcha love the’do?!?!?!
the stately Crowned crane
the ubiquitous Egyptian geese
This is an African Jacana with eggs! I had no idea what the name of this bird was. I had written it down but who knows where that ended up. Fortunately, it didn’t take me long to find it in my book.
We saw a number of little chicks. Isn’t it cute??? And look at the size of those feet!
How this for some ugly ducks? I don’t remember what these are but they are definitely unusual.
a beautiful fish eagle
secretary bird again
Goliath heron.. the only one we saw. Not the best photos but it’s all I got.
The rest are just landscapes with birds..
There are many more but this is enough!
