With plenty of water in the Delta, it’s no surprise that there’s a wide variety of birds.
Common Ostrich that is native to Africa. It defends itself by hiding, running or kicking with their powerful legs. They can live to be 40-45 years old.
African Fish Eagle. We saw these eagle everyday but unfortunately we didn’t see a successful hunt. They mate for life and live to be 12-24 years old.
African Hawk Eagle. that hunts small mammals, reptiles and birds.
I have not been able to identify these beautiful birds.
This Kingfisher blew by at a high rate of speed and I was lucky to capture this shot. However, with the sun behind her, it isn’t clear enough for me to positively identify the species. Perhaps a Pied Kingfisher?
