Birdlife on Bazaruto, part 2


This Olive Bee Eater set the tone for the birdlife on the island. Previously in Maputo all I had seen were Crows that seemed to have chased away all the local birdlife


This Pied Kingfisher was having more luck that the fishermen staying at Indigo Bay Resort!


Even a Sacred Ibis joined in the feeding...


These are "Cape" doves, yet there they were feeding while I ate breakfast on the veranda...


Even the South African " Mossie" or Common House Sparrow can be found on the island. This one seems to want to be a ship's mascot.


There were several of these Western Reef Herons patrolling the shoreline and feeding a variety of seafood delicacies...


I found this group of Helmeted Guinea Fowl near the Spa at the top of the hill...


What is the collective noun for Scared Ibis?


Another regular to our garden back in South Africa, the Black-Eyed Bulbul


These Hartlaub's gulls were practicing take of and landing in the early morning sunlight


Time to find new feeding grounds...


Waiting for a meal? I know where to find mine...
