Hey everyone I am not sure of ID of this lovely bird if anyone can help, I know it's a bird of prey. Loved the face and they way it perched right in the centre of what was a very large nest. Pretty sure it is a Kite of some kind ?

To all the bird-lovers... A painting of a Collared Sunbird that I did last October. I loved painting this little fellow...Husband Abraham took quite a number of photos in Kruger last year when we found it happily visiting a flowering AloeπŸ˜‰ We also find them here in the Tzaneen area & they love to β€˜interact’ with their reflections when seen in a window. Swipe left to see the framed painting.

THE AFRICAN PENGUINS, Betty's Bay, Cape Town, South Africa πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦, It takes time for these penguins to develop fishing skills to the stage when they can not only feed themselves but also their hungry chicks.These penguins only start breeding by the age of 5 years, and they only live up to the age of 20, the oldest one that was recorded a penguin that survived until the age of 27. #theafricanpenguins #penguins #texido #waterbirds #penguinsofmadagascar. #penguinsphotography #penguinsofinstagram #birdsphotography #wildbirdsphotography #wildlifephotography #outdoorphotography #waterbirdsofsouthafrica #birds_brilliance #birds_adored #nuts_about_birds #birds.nature #photography #bbcearth #your_best_birds #ip_birds #perfect_birds #birdsofsouthafrica #birdslovers #wild_life_birds #birdsmagazine #birdsworld #birdsworldwide #birdsontheearth #birdswatching #birdsofafrica

Side profile of an African bird in casual #blackandwhite.
If you are interested in bird and mammal species in Africa you can have a look at our NATUCATE courses. After taking part at our birding course you could probably tell us which bird we captured here on camera – even though it is a black and white photo and the model usually appears in a bright red and yellow. Do you know which bird species the photo shows?

Ah, the paradise flycatcher. I’ve seen or heard this bird almost every day without getting a good photo of it. But finally, I’ve got it. It’s been a long struggle, but I made it!

The Striped Kingfisher's genus name Halcyon comes from a Greek myth bird. It was believed that the halcyon made a nest on the sea, which it calmed to make a floating next to lay eggs on. I photographed this one at #SalasCamp in #MasaaiMara, #Kenya.

Grey heron (Ardea cinerea) // The best part about the Kruger is how different the wildlife is (especially birdlife) compared to Australia.
Everywhere you look there is usually a species that is endemic to the continent of Africa.
On occasion, you will see species that are prevalent in Australia as well, but for the most part the bird species are not only unique to the Kruger, but unique to this beautiful continent.

Pearl-spotted Owlet - a beautiful little bird from Africa. Tanzania is home to many wonderful birds. This one was so well camouflaged and in the shade. Just as I spotted it and stopped to take a shot, I was half expecting it to fly away. However, it was quite cooperative. #owlets #birdphotography #birdsofafrica #africansafari #serengetinationalpark #tanzania #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #pearlspottedowlet #framesofnature #santhosh.photography #birdwingtp #natgeoyourshot #natgeowild #bbcwildlife #bestbirdshot

"The Selous held hidden gems around every corner", recalls @mikelentzsa β €
β €
He was so fortunate to have lions or wild dogs on their airstrip almost every morning for 3 months. The prides are large and healthy with lots of space to roam freely. The large herds of buffalo, eland, zebra and wildebeest to sustain them. β €
β €
The Reserve has boasts the one of the greatest concentrations of Cape Hunting Dogs. These rare animals thrive with less human pressure as well as the having the space they so desperately need.β €
β €
We will be bringing you more information on the Selous in the coming weeks. We will add the link to our bio soon. This is not an easy area to access but can be safe and friendly if you know where to go and what to do :) β €
β €
Pictured here Mike has captured a pair of White Throated Bee Eaters. Both indulging in some tasty insect snacks. β €

One of the more common birds one can see in Africa, a yellow billed hornbill. This one was hanging around our lunch table. #hornbill #yellow #yellowbilledhornbill #birdsofinstagram #birdsofafrica #southafrica @tswalau #feathers #wildlife @wildlife.hd @natgeoyourshot #safari

The Lilac Breasted Roller: a heavy billed, beautifully coloured bird with a green head, lilac throat and breast, a blue belly and even brighter blue wing feathers. They are highly territorial and also thought to be monogamous.

A Purple Grenadier. I've only ever seen one of these and this is it. I believe only found in East Africa. Quality OK but sighting important. Masai Mara @newtonkongo. It turned out OK.

pel's fishing owl at the african bird of prey sanctuary ~ while we were lucky enough to get to see one of these in camp before dinner on our first night at @wearewilderness xigera camp in the okavango delta, it was very dark and I didn't have my camera with me at the time, so it was wonderful to get to see one up close at the sanctuary

β€œWest African Crowned Crane”
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
The St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park in Florida celebrated their 125th anniversary this year. Even though they have been around that long, I had my first visit last month. It was a truly amazing experience.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Their website states, β€œThe Alligator Farm is now the only facility in the world exhibiting living species of all 24 currently recognized species of crocodilian.” I did not go there to photograph the alligators but the birds. Their wading bird rookery hosts all sorts of birds such as spoonbills, egrets, blue heron, and other water birds.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Before I left, I visited the birds of Africa. My favorite bird there was the West African Crowned Crane aka the Black crowned-crane. Can you tell why it was my favorite bird?
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
A special thanks to Jeffery @jeffreypkarnes_birds for giving me tips about the Alligator Farm via IG.
