Birds of Serengeti.

On Safari, most people are so excited to see the Big 5 or the larger walking wildlife that they may forget to look up. Look up you say? Yes, look up for the lovely birds. They are fantastic to watch. Oh, and let’s not forget the ground dwellers as well.

There are so many lovely birds out there. Some that are resident birds and some that fly all the way from Europe and Americas. Those birds that have flown from other places come here to Tanzania and other East and Southern African countries at the risk of being netted. A lot of countries on their route will poach and illegally trap them. Just unbelievable!

But there is hope.

Organizations around the world who love birds are spreading the word to people like you and me who were not aware of such activities. Paul Oliver was the one who opened my eyes when we were birding in Lake Natron. He told me about the plight of the wadders we spotted on the shores.

I leave you with some lovely birds captured around Central Serengeti.
