Gambian red-billed firefinch photos


After the blog post on my last morning at the “hamerkop pond” in the Gambia, and before describing my departure from Africa, I should return to Gambian red-billed firefinches.

Such a beautiful species deserves more than just one blog post of its own.

Females are not as colourful as males, but are beautiful in their own way.
