Africa Wild Bird Book: Comments & Suggestions

Post by Flutterby » Wed May 23, 2012 3:37 pm

Post your bird picturess under the "Africa Wild Bird Book: Pictures and Descriptions" thread with a short information (description, distribution, habitat etc). Only one bird per post please.

To find a bird, go to the Index and click on the name - this will take you directly to the relevant post.

If you have a photo of a species that is already in the book that shows a particularly good ID feature not shown in the photos already submitted, please post them here so that they can be added to the book.

Any comments or suggestions can be posted in this thread.

A very good osprey video:

There are 3 sequences in this one video:
1st sequence he catches half a dozen fish in one strike.
2nd sequence he plunges talons into deep water right to the bottom to grab his prey.
3rd sequence he captures a big old fish that looks as if it weighs more than he does!
This is incredible to watch (best viewed in full screen mode)...enjoy!

Thanks RP. \O

The last clip looks like Rothiemurchus Fish Farm. A great place to watch Ospreys fishing. Went there a long time ago and had a brilliant morning Osprey watching. O/\
