A Northern Puffback
For the past two months I've been watching a pair of swifts (not sure which ones) at their nest in the rafters above my spare room. I can't seem to get a clear photo due to the darkness under the roof but hope you can see the bird in the mud nest. Yesterday I spotted an immature swift on the roof above the nest with one parent in close attendance.
An immature swift
Plaintively calling its parent
I love this image
As usual after market on Tuesdays, Sue and I did a spot of birding. I couldn't resist photographing this serious-looking Laughing Dove sitting in a thorn bush. Its mate was sitting on a nest almost directly below but I couldn't get a good photo through all the foliage
The Lovebirds had moved up closer to the mine. Here we watched a pair working in and around their nest (the other bird was on the wire above)
On the fence surrounding the plant, we found this Pale Flycatcher
And below on the wire, was the juvenile Pale Flycatcher. It is paler than the parent and mottled with brown and grey
Calling its parent!
Today at midday we're driving through to Nairobi. Grant has business in the city. We're staying in the Ya-Ya apartments so no problem for me to get to the shopping mall: it's downstairs!
