Birds of Tsavo

Tsavo was an especially nice place for bird pictures. I'm not sure how many rare finds we made, but several of the birds were new to us. We had a great time and were impressed with how well our driver could spot birds. 

We have tried to identify the ones that we could without a good bird book at hand.
