Feathered Friends

I have come to love the birdlife here in South Luangwa as much as the animals. Here are a few photographs taken with my F2.8 70-200mm zoom lens.

Heuglin’s Robin, the best mimic in the woods. He can copy any call, and seems to enjoy adding extra bits of melody to make it his own.

White-browed sparrow weavers. They make grass tunnels for easy getaways when predators are threatening. Prolific birds in the Park.
