@COSMIC RHINO asked me to post this photo of Oxpeckers taking flight from a Rhino he saw during a 2017 visit to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya.   It is a PDF scan of a photo I converted to JPEG for posting to Safaitalk.

Very nice photos @Soukous.    And I am very jealous of your travels - Botswana in May and the Farne Islands in June!

If I'm honest, I'm jealous of just about everybody else's travels. Sitting at a desk is made much harder by the ability to see that others are travelling. Curse the Internet. Curse Trip Reports.:angry:

Whilst they may make flying look effortless when they are aloft, Saddle Billed Storks are pretty gangly and watching them take off is quite a show.

Yesterday I drove an hour and a half to enjoy and photograph the annual Kite spectacle near Allendale, South Carolina.  I've posted about it before, so I'll keep it brief and just toss up a couple of photos.

 

Here is a shot I took just after the parent dropped off a large katydid for junior to consume.  The parent is vocalizing to the other youngster, who was bobbing up and down and whistling in an adjacent tree.

Here is the parent ferrying a large katydid to one of the fledglings:

Not really flight in this sequence! The engine has been turned off as the bird plummets downwards to make the perfect 10 score for the dive!
