Penultimate birding in Mwadui

The week before we left Tanzania (when I wasn't flying around the country with the cats!) Grant and I did a last spot of birding. 
Abdim's Stork

Raptor (to be identified!)
Western Marsh Harrier (thanks Margaret of Birding for Pleasure!) 
Red-billed Quelea
White-browed Coucal (Juvenile)
Rattling Cisticola

We saw many more which I'll post in next week's meme. For now I'm linking to Wild Bird Wednesday here

Happy Wednesday to you all! 


  1. i like that stork.. to me they are so ugly they are beautiful... i am wondering if you have the same species of birds in the part of Africa where you are now?

  2. Hello Jo, wonderful collection of birds and sightings from your outing.. I love the Stork and Quelea. Have a happy day!

  3. HI Jo Now I am going to have a stab at what the second raptor might be, A female Western Marsh Harrier. Now I am going to see if I can Id the other one but I think it might be a young bird and then I will have difficulty. Great post.

  4. I like the fluffy juvenile.

  5. Yesterday I left a comment here and I don' see it. I thought the second raptor might be a female Western Marsh Harrier. What do you think?

  6. They are all spectacular. Soon you'll be birding in a different part of Africa.
