queleas

10

Birds of Kruger National Park:

  • Blue waxbill (four photos)
  • Southern yellow-billed hornbill
  • Lilac breasted roller (two photos)
  • Red-billed quelea (two photos) - we saw many huge flocks but only got close enough for (poor) photos on one occasion. When flocks of several hundred thousand descend on grain fields the yield for the farmer is much reduced. Estimates suggest that there are more red-billed quelea than there are birds of any other species in the world. 
  • African green pigeon
