  2. Very interesting blog and beautiful photos!
    Your blog has made me a very nice impression.
    I wish you more and more success and luck in the photos of birds!

  3. Wow. These pictures make me miss East Africa dearly...

  4. Thanks for listing all these. I have several species in my photos that I was able to identify using your images! Just got back from Northern Tanzania. Headed back again in 2013 for a month. So many birds, so little time.

    Wonderful site! Thanks you were the only site that actually showed me the birds and gave the name in the same place without having to link to another page. I was able to label a lot of my photo's

  8. This was really helpful to find an animal for a school project. Thanks so much!!

  9. nice profile help us to know many things about birds when we guide

  10. Fantastic shots. I just saw a bird on the Serengeti Snapshot site and looked here for ID but no luck.

  11. Thanks so much for your wonderful photos. I have just returned from a 10 day safari in northern Tanzania and got really excited about birds (how could you not?) With the help of our intrepid guide, we managed to photograph and identify 113 species (oh and we looked at the game too....).

    When is the best time to visit Tanzania for birds?

  13. Can you tell me the name of a blue bird in saw in the Serengeti? It's about 3 or 4 shades of blue. Quite light in the breast - darker blue on the back with dark wing feathers, I have a photo if I could send it somewhere.
