Wings and Feathers

This is the third Madikwe post, to see the first two click here (1) and here (2).

I can't have a series of safari posts without having a dedicated Birds post, now can I? You all know we love our birds! Our safari guide was an expert birder which was very helpful as we didn't really feel we could take our sweet time trying to identify each bird we saw when there was a jeepful of people who wanted to see the Big 5 and didn't really care about our feathered friends as much as we do.

 Lilac Breasted Roller

Pearl Spotted Owlet / Gabar Goshawk
