Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
These birds are highly social, feeding and roosting together and engaging in mutual preening. They often dust bathe and occasionally eat soil. Photos show before, during and after dust bathing.
Nairobi National Park
Our guide wasn't much of a bird person. He was awesome about finding anything else we were excited about.
I think the park is well worth a visit. Several years ago, I went with a tour company when I had a little time and found it less satisfying; we zipped through the park and when some fellow guests wanted to leave early to get to the airport, the visit was cut short. This time, I got a taxi to take me both days and the drivers were very nice about stopping whenever I wanted (and it wasn't that expensive). In fact, the drivers got enthusiastic and started helping me spot birds and animals!
Love these guys. So cute! I really wanted to do a drive thru NNP but our tour company talked us out of it. Said it wasn't "worth" it. Next time!
I was working in Kenya but had time off the day after I arrived and the day I left so I used it to go the National Park! I have more spottings and am working through them all. :)
Thanks for sharing! Were you on an educational trip to kenya? or on Safari?
