Deon has captured some superb bird images since the weekend.  Here are a few:

The beautiful and showy (Female scarlet sunbird; woodlands kingfisher)

(Black and white casqued hornbill; Ruppell’s starling)

To the VERY hungry (I just love the goo visible on the beak!)

The trees are squawking non-stop at the moment!  Our guava is a particularly great place to hang out, as the noisy Brown (Meyer’s) parrots testify (voluminously!). We have at least 5 hanging around regularly! 

But sometimes the parrots, and even the maniacal plantain eaters are a bit shy!

And then the not so pretty bird-wannabees…

Fruit bats!  Just hanging around, vegging!
