What can I say? I just LOVE birds! They are all so beautiful, how could you not love them? There is such a variety in Southern Africa, especially in the Kruger National Park (well over 500 have been recorded), and they are everywhere. The whole KNP is a Birder's Paradise as far as I am concerned, and I sure do wish that I lived closer, because I would be there all the time. Don't get me wrong, I am a lover of all creatures, great and small, and I truly enjoy all the different types of vegetation, especially the beautiful Baobab, Sausage, Fever Trees, and the list can go on and on. Here is a small sample of the Beauties that I have been blessed to see.

Thanks for giving us such a wonderful show of birds!

I just love birds and could sit and watch them all day long. I find the hides give me great pleasure because of the number of different birds that come to the hides.

Very nice photos Mary Jane!

Two common and two rare sightings. We see the ground hornbill and oxpeckers on nearly every trip to the Kruger but the Hoopoe and helemet shrike - hardly ever!
