Distant Hills

Distant storm.

Masked Lovebirds

Fluttering down to the bird bath at the entrance to Tarangire National Park.

West of here you only find Fischer’s Lovebirds so these were a lovely find.

Beautiful and quite noisy, as lovebirds usually are.

Oxpecker Opportunist

Nature is gross… (and super interesting). This Red-billed Oxpecker, who also loves ear wax and keeping scabs from fully forming so it can feast on blood and tissue, seems particularly attuned to the digestive timing of giraffes. It flew down from the beast’s neck within seconds of this process starting so it could have its pick of the ticks that inhabit this usually inaccessible region. Yup, gross… and interesting.

Bird Light Wind… keeping it real since 2008.
