Pied Babblers…

These birds are alot less shy than the arrow marked babblers. They happily hopped about in the trees and on the ground, posed for me! Pied BabblersThey make a very similar noise to the arrowmarked babblers – one which always reminds me of my family – noisy, gregarious, numerous

Pied BabblersThese pics were taken in the Khama Rhino Sanctuary, Serowe, Botswana. I have never seen them in Zimbabwe, but I’m told we do get them.

Pretty. Must say I don’t remember those at all.

I have certainly never seen them before. I first saw them on a blog I follow – congratulating the guy on capturing them…and how hard it was for me to get their relatives the arrow marked. He said he saw them at REPS when he was at school there – I will certainly keep a look out when we next go to Matopos
