Red Vented Bulbuls were first identified in 1766 and originate from India.

People tend to not like them because they eat flowers. I like flowers, and Red Vented Bulbus.

The Fairy Tern is native to the south west Pacific. It’s numbers are rapidly decreasing and it is considered a vulnerable species.

The White Capped Noddy, is wide spread in tropical seas and doesn’t have much fear of people. You can walk right up to them and they are studying you!
Cheers to you from the clever birds of Polynesia~

      • I know I will. Going to be looking for Fishing Eagles on Lower Sabie damn……And this time I will at least know when it’s a hippo I hear snorting at the braii!!! I’ve even studied online how to shop more knowledgeably for groceries at the Pic n Pay before we enter Kruger. I was already charged once by an ellie, so this time I hopefully won’t be! They won’t do it twice in a row to the same person, right????? πŸ˜‰ Can’t wait…. Reading Alexander Fuller’s new book now. It is getting me psyched up for Africa!!!!

  2. It is truly amazing how birds vary from region to region. These three look so unusual to those of us who live on the East coast. All three of these fine feathered fellows are lovely, Cindy. πŸ˜‰

    • I am fascinated by the variety of birds in the world and also by what people consider to be exotic or common based on birds in their region. I was entranced by the Polynesian Mynah birds, but others told me how common they were in their area. To me they were exotic. On the other hand, everywhere I go except for Antarctica and the Amazon, has house finches. They seem to be the ultimate globe hoppers~

  3. Beautiful birdies. I’m back in Philly. Maybe I’ll actually ‘sit’ this time around?
    You only have to sit once. But if I don’t they’ll keep calling me (this is the 4th time) until I do or I turn 70 – whichever comes first. So I posted now so I don’t have to get up extra early before heading out to the courthouse.

    Cheers! Jules
