2017-05-07: The birds of Amboseli

One of the things that surprised me most about Amboseli was spending time watching the birds in the marsh.  I had gone there expecting flat plains, lots of dust and lots of elephants, and I definitely got that, but the birds were an unexpected surprise.  I guess you could say I didn’t do a ton of research on the area before going there, and perhaps that is a good thing, as then surprises await at every turn on the road.

Today I have a rather large selection of bird images, I hope you enjoy seeing some of the feathered beauties of Amboseli.
