    Bob,
    The Starling is a gorgeous bird. What beautiful colors. Great shot. The stork is cuter than our storks. Gotta love the GBH and Hippo, that is a classic....

    Those Ostrichs are almost just to big to call a bird :>)))

    I'm so envious of you and Nan. Maybe someday Janie and I will get to take great trips like this one. Wonderful birdies.
     
  5. Wow! That Starling sure doesn't look like any around these parts! Great colors on that one!
