OMG, I have to go to Kenya this time of the year. They’re so tiny! Thanks, Yi.

Monica, welcome home! I have looked at your bird gallery so far--wonderful. I'll have a go at the rest in the next few days, although of course I had to peek at some of the lion shots.

Looking forward to your report very much.

Yi,

Your photo theme seemed to be 2 by 2, even some of the bird shots. Excellent pics! I like the use of flamingos in the background for many of your shots. Welcome home. Take your time on the report.

Hi Leely - Thx for taking time to view my photos & comments. Hope you will take rest of my travel pictures.

atravelynn - Yes, I perfer to take a shot of a pair of animals more than a single one. It seems more interesting composition. Nice of you to notice my style.

Thx all of you.

Monica

Fodorites!
Have a look at Yi’s “Impala, Oryx & Topi". There you’ll find the tiny ones.

Wonderful photos. All of the galleries are fantastic, but I particularly enjoyed the birds, the migration, and most of all the people gallery.

Monica, it was my pleasure to view and comment. I have now seen all the Africa galleries and will check out the others. I really like how you've arranged everything. pbase is great, isn't it? I need to work on all that.

Glad you had a good time and happy travels in the future.

hi Monica

thanks for sharing your photos. i like the way they are organized
Pbase seems like a good potential "host" for pics (once i scan mine)

Can i send you corrections to (bird) misidentifications ?

Hi Monica

tha "Eastern Yellow=billed" is actually a red billed Hornbill
(though i am colour-blind ...)

The "White-Bellied Go Away Bird" is a Specled Mousebird

i think the "BAGLAFECHT WEAVER"
is Speke's Weaver
"BAGLAFECHT WEAVER1" i wish i could see better its chest and its back; was it taken at the same colony as the previous?

25 is a Babbler - wherewas it taken?

16 is a Bulbul

the Ibis is Hadada Ibis

Hi Aby - I am very please you pointed out the right name for me. If you didn't help, I never known the correct names. Thank you so much. Really appreciated .

I took the two Speke’s Weavers shots in the same place.

I took the Babbler in the Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge – Lake Nakuru (They are really lovely).

Is 12 = Bulbul?

Do u know the name of 21?

Thx again
Monica

Monica

both "12" & "Thirst" are Bulbul
(more specific: Common bulbul or Yellow-vented Bulbul in different books)
The Babblers may be Black-lored Babbler but i need more pics or closer to be sure
