Colorful and different is how I can describe the birds in Namibia. Some I have seen in other parts of Africa; some I have not. Birds can often be difficult to photograph because some of them seldom stay still, but others will stop on a branch and rest there for a long time, making photographing easier.

Rosy-faced Lovebird

Flamingo – there are enormous flocks of these graceful birds. There are often thousands on one small area.

Lilac-breasted Roller

Southern Pale Chanting Goshawk

Yellow Billed Hornbill

Red Billed Hornbill

Ostrich – though this bird is flightless it is still considered a bird


Evidently it is rare to be able to get a photo of this bird in flight. I guess I was lucky.
