BIG BIRDS OF BOTSWANA

Bird fans! Before our Africa trip disappears into the rearview mirror, I wanted to include some posts of our feathered friends. Yes, we went to Africa to see the elephants, hippos, giraffes and other exotic mammals but the wide variety of bird life proved to be fascinating as well. The images below are from Chobe National Park in Botswana.
