Kazinga, Part 2: more Uganda goodies

Here’s link to my first Kazinga Channel posting.

This is the impressive African Fish Eagle.  You can probably guess he’s in the same genus (Haliaeetus) as the American Bald Eagle, Steller’s Sea Eagle, and the White-tailed Eagle found across northern Europe.

Black-winged Stilt.

Foreground: the aptly named Goliath Heron, standing five feet tall.  That’s more than a foot taller than our “Great” Blue Heron, who now doesn’t look so “great.”  And that’s a wallowing buffalo in the muck behind Goliath.

The Malachite Kingfisher, a few inches of intensity.  Concentration and colors.

Marsh Sandpiper exploring the muddy expanse.

African Skimmers and Gull-billed Terns, hanging out.

Skimmers skimming.   Yes, those are buffalo on the shore behind them.

  1. Love the blogs. Keep em coming.

  3. […] head on the Sacred Ibis, made famous by generations of pharah’s and their scriveners.  Many more Kazinga shots, in next blog posting.  And here is a link to Kazinga #2. Possibly related posts: (automatically generated)QENP and Ishasha (18- 28 October)Lake Edward Water […]

  4. That fish eagle is amazing- as are most of these birds. Thanks!
