Southern Ground Hornbill

Southern Ground-hornbill

Southern Ground Hornbill, originally uploaded by gwendolen. Seen near the big baobab tree at one of the Letaba river loops near Shimuwini in Kruger National Park. She seems to have a clouded eye. We saw her in a group of four. Two males were in the baobab, singing. Loved that sighting (and hearing)

Vulture Picnic

Lappet-faced Vultures, White-backed Vultures and Marabou Stork on a kill in the Kruger National Park. It was quite far away, we couldn’t see what they were feasting on. Perhaps a Wildebeest (Gnu). Have a look at more bird photography at Bird Photography Weekly for more bird photos around the world.
