Out of the Savanna grasslands of the #SwaraPlains in Kitengela comes our #FreeFotoFriday – Juvenile Red-Fronted Barbet. The area boasts of amazing birds especially within the acacia trees near the ravine
A small yellow and black bird which would easily be mistaken for a a Red-Fronted Tinker bird but the large beak and the back streaks largely make a huge difference for identification
Or could it really be a tinker bird? Small birds can really make a mess for bird watchers. Having to seek for those unique features that distinguish the bird from another can be also a tricky affair. Do you encounter such?
Despite a long day, #FreeFotoFriday – Flamingo could not miss out. In oil like looking waters, this birds seemed to move about in a row like cluster. Like there was a path they were keeping to

A lesser and greater hung out like they were all birds of a feather. As I pray for #Burundi I am reminded of togetherness by these creatures. Every life matters and am sure we all need each other. Pink shades may distinguish the #FreeFotoFriday – Flamingos but at the end of the day, they are Flamingos
The lighting of the image is interesting, makes #Kasuniephotography consider for a feature
Once again we feature #FreeFotoFriday – Yellow-Rumped seedeater returns with a spectacular showing of the reason as to why it is called so. With the several poses taken for the bird on the same day, the different angles brought out special image effects
#FreeFotoFriday – Yellow-Rumped Seedeater
See the nice coloration of yellow on the back. I like the image as the bird was looking into the valley below and the dark clouds that morning made it look different. Different good!
At times one goes bird watching expecting to see those different birds out there but the same bird in a different dimension show off a an awesome aspect – An outstanding Yellow rump
PS: After thorough scrutiny and clarification from fellow bird watchers, the bird on the image is actually the non breeding male of the Yellow bishop. Confirmed as on Birds of Kenya’s rift valley by Adam Scott Kennedy
#FreeFotoFriday – Yellow-Rumped Seedeater is our free unique image this day. Captured in Sleeping Warrior lodge, the bird i want to believe has made its abode around the Cordon Bleu accommodation area as it was around for our stay.
Maybe it was the welcome and stay on well party. We were thoroughly entertained. She was huge and fat and basking in the porch each morning for the morning sun was part of its ritual

The yellow rump was vividly seen unlike after a while as it seemed earlier like the streaky seedeater. For sure by the size of the bird, the area seems to be blessed with plenty. Am not even sure whether it could fly far leave alone fast if attacked
