@@Soukous - so you'll love the comment form the person sharing the hide, who was not interested in them "we have parrots in Australia". Why go on safari then??? :wacko:

I know the feeling.

Our guide in Chobe told us that he was once with a client when the found a pangolin.

Dennis was excited and told his client "this is really special"

the client looked at him and replied "if it is special for you Dennis, then it is special for me, come on let's go."

 

as you say, why go on safari?

Stunning TD! I especially love that low-angle shot of the saddle-bill.

As the year nears an end I thought I'd check on the progress of your Big Year. That Black Crake is outstanding. Going back a ways your Ground Hornbill shots are fantastic.

The bird photographers are going to love your "stats."

 

You made the Glossy Starlings very interesting.
