White Storks in the familiar V formation.

I’ll admit to not being much of a bird watcher.  I don’t generally look for them but once in a while one will catch my attention.  On our trip to South Africa we couldn’t help but notice hundreds of different species.

The Bulbul is a vocal insect eater.

And some were rather talkative.

These are just a few of the pictures we caught of them while photographing other animals. One could probably spend a lifetime on birding safaris in South Africa alone.
