African Water Birds

This is a collection of the best water bird photos from my trip.

The first three photos show darters. The next one is an african skimmer. The weird shape of the bill is because they fly over the water with their lower mandible skimming the water to find fish.

The two photos after the skimmer show kingfishers and the last two photos show a yellow-billed stork and an African openbill. Doesn’t the openbill look a little bit like a pterosaur?
