When no major outings are planned, I have to content myself with whatever birds show up in my yard. Fortunately we have had a couple interesting ones, the last few months that actually showed themselves unlike the Diderick Cuckoo which was forever taunting my by staying out of sight. I haven’t heard him lately so perhaps he has migrated back to his other home. At any rate, here are a few photos of some of the interesting birds that have visited our yard in the past couple months.
A female Eurasian Golden Oriole. We saw her a couple times.
This Senegal Coucal visits occasionally. Usually I only hear him as he is just beyond our wall into the next yard.
I am thankful that the Variable Sunbird brings his beauty into our yard almost daily.
Small flocks of cheerful White-Eyes appear fairly frequently in the yard. It is hard to get them to sit still for a picture.
