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?

#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
