In Tendaba in the Gambia.
This is a squacco heron video.
Two squacco herons flying to the left. Later, a third squacco heron in the same direction: to a squacco heron sleeping tree?
Caspian terns standing in the water. A Caspian tern flies past with a sizable fish in its bill.
Lesser blue-eared glossy-starling in the bushes behind the water.
Very common within its range but uncommonly striking to birders who are unfamiliar with just how colorful starlings can be, the greater blue-eared starling is a magnificent bird with spectacular plumage that has to be seen to be believed: here.
