Oh WOW Safariman, what a grand selection and I truely can't pick out a favourite, they all have something really special, I think the best compliment I can give you is that I will most surely be looking at those pictures over and over again. I too love birds and those just fill me with cheer, so like a book, those will be incredibly thumbed through again and again,

 Brilliant shots again Safariman, thanks for sharing them with us. Quite a few I've not seen, but also some I have seen on the African Web Cams. At Petes Ponds there are a family of Egyptian Geese with 12 yound they are around 30 days old now, on the Ustream Chat for PP we call them Gucks because they look like Ducks but are actualy Geese. There are also a few of the others that visit the Pond, Fish Eagle, Egret, Greater Eagret, Pied Kingfisher. There are also other Birds to see such as, the Kori Bustard, Brown Hooded Kingfisher, Green Backed Heron, Saddle Billed stork, Yellow Billed Stork, ect
