Well, okay, these weaver's nests don't fly. But the weaver birds do.
Yes. Yes, I know. I do know this is an ostrich. I don't know where exactly I thought one would find an ostrich in the wild, but the fact that they have a big presence in Kenya and Tanzania never crossed my mind. (The one made of Swiss cheese.)
I do remember these, above, are some sort of Egyptian geese.
This little plump cutie? Nary a clue. I'd rather you just thought me dull and stupid rather than a faker who just threw out likely sounding names when I truly wasn't sure. And, who knows, I have probably identified some of these incorrectly. For which, if I have, I am really sorry. I am just not a bird name rememberer.
This big one was a hawk. I think. A Harrier hawk?
This is a superb starling. That is one I remember. I mean, honestly, who could forget the name of such a glorious bird?
Don't know. Don't remember, but they were iridescent and beautiful!
Remember this one? Splendid starling....
This is a yellow bird and...
....these are storks! Flew all the way from Europe to winter in the warmth of Africa.
To all you birders out there, forgive me.
