Siedelweber (Philetairus socius) bilden riesige Nistkolonien in einem Baum. Oft nisten hunderte dieser Vögel in einem Gemeinschaftsnest aus Halmen zusammengesteckt. Die Nestbauten kann man aufgrund ihrer enormen Größe auf weite Distanz bereits erkennen. Nicht selten krachen die über Jahrzehnte zu schwer gewordenen Nester mit Teilen des Baumes zu Boden. Die Nester werden von unten angeflogen. • A shot through the car window- one of those trees being a home to hundrets of social weavers. Because of the enormous size of those nesting colonies you can spot those trees from far away. As they grow in size and weight year by year you will find broken down nests and trees quite often. The birds enter the nests from below

Yes! Ground hornbills fly, and quite well! You just don’t see them flying that much. This one gave us a nice demonstration. In the Okavango Delta, Botswana.#groundhornbill #botswana #birdsofafrica #nicpolenakisguide #myprivateafrica #lorenassafaris #nature #wildlife #conservation #protectwildlife

Southern Carmine Bee-eaters. When one first arrives at the colony one is filled with excitement.. firstly by the spectacle that you are witnessing and secondly by the prospect of "this is going to be easy..I'm going to smash epic photos here"...well the spectacle is epic but the photography not nearly as easy as anticipated. Was privileged to have the opportunity though.
Just can't understand how some human's reaction can be to catch them and pluck all their feathers out for self gain????"
