Safari birds

Secretary bird. Big bird--about four feet tall--so-called because it looks like it has quill pens sprouting from its head. It seldom flies but has very strong legs. In fact, it kills its prey by trampling them to death.

Marabou stork. Often seen with vultures. They are huge (notice that wingspan!).

Weaverbirds' nests. I didn't see any weaverbirds, but we saw trees full of their hanging nests.

And a couple of my chicks.

Those are great wildlife photos, especially the last two.
