Kenya 22/12 -12 Part 3

Everybody likes to look at cute ducks in parks, and the opportunity I got here at Lake Nakuru, to get the rest of the family interested in these birds, was perfect!

Raptors are allways among my favourites when it comes to birds, and around Lake Nakuru we got to see a few at a very good distance.


Tawny Eagle/Savanneørn

A couple of birds with interesting head-ornaments allso showed up. Helmeted Guineafowl(Hjelmperlehøne) looks like it has got some kind of dinosaur-horn onn its head, whike the Grey Crowned Crane(Gråkrontrane) looks like it has borrowed a posh hat from a high-end woman.

As many may have seen earlier in the blog, shorebirds are among my absolute favourite birds, and to get to see some species that I have wanted to see for a long time up close eas amazing. It was also a little surprise to get to see some very familiar species here as well.
