This was my second time visiting the Northern Parks of Tanzania. This time we went with African Wildcats Expeditions, based out of Arusha. I’m pretty sure I saw as many new species (to me) as I did during my FIRST visit in 2009!
Some of the birds from Tarangire National Park, Tanzania, that I saw on my Safari in May:
7. Water Thicknee (honestly – who comes up with these names? LOL)
Water Thicknee (Burhinus vermiculatus) by the river by Brian Hampson, on Flickr
By my quick count of pics from that day, I have 20 species sighted in the first day… Not a bad day. Not bad at all, considering it’s not a bird-specific outing.
