Birds of Africa

When I fell in love with birding.

I have enjoyed birds for as long as I can remember. I got serious about birding while I was living in East Africa from 2012–2015. This is a collection of photographs from five different countries, including images from Maasai Mara, Serengeti, and Zanzibar. Most of the birds have been identified properly. Otherwise, there is a question mark where I may need correction. I hope you enjoy them!
