Some out-of-turn birds....!

Had a hectic day, and just don't have the time to make a long post of the next day at Ngorongoro Crater and the trip to the Serengeti...so I am going to post some photos of birds in no particular order...

The LILAC-BREASTED ROLLER


a picture for you


That same roller, taking off (I am thinking of sainath and dearchcichi and shivakumar_l)

The GLOSSY STARLING (as beautiful as the Superb Starling)

Some WHITE-BROWED ROBIN-CHATS on a bush



White-browed Robin-chats



A STREAKY-THROATED BARBET eating breakfast




D'Arnaud's Barbet


and a RED-BILLED HORNBILL on an acacia bush (imagine sitting comfortably on a plant with thorns like that...must have been an Indian fakir in its last birth! And I think it needs lessons in applying lipstick, too...)


Red-billed Hornbill





OK, OK, tomorrow we will have the cheetahs eating the gazelle, and the lions walking on the road....I prooooomise!
