  3. I agree with Ann (above) about the painted stork! Beautiful! I also love the Coppersmith Barbet, the White-breasted Kingfisher and the black robin. I've never heard of a black robin! But my favourite photo was of the man taking the cows for a walk!

  19. Your bird photos are always so exceptional. I enjoy them so much. The Kingfisher's bill looks almost as big as his body! I think maybe I am not patient enough to photograph birds! Thanks for linking up today.

  21. I was wondering what that was...a Painted Stork! How unusual! We have Storks but they are white. Yours are beautiful! Love all of the wonderful bird photos. What a great day to take photographs!

Lovely to see you and your boy sat watching for the birds together, did you manage to spot what you were watching for? It must be lovely to explore such beautiful nature spots as a family.
