I'm traditionally not much of a bird person. But, I have become fascinated by the birds in Botswana. They have the most vivid colours. Against the backdrop of the dusty scrub and Acacia bushes the colours really 'pop' and look so lovely. Today I spotted some turquoise breasted birds (wrens??) scavenging in the dirt and was mystified for a good five minutes. This gold breasted bird held my attention a couple of days ago. I am told that as it cools in the northern hemisphere there will be a veritable riot of bird activity here, especially once the rains begin. Never thought I would say this, but I'm slightly excited.

Great bird photo, but please explain the new banner? No offence but it looks a little like a funeral home image?? Perhaps it needs a caption?!
