Feathered Friends


Uganda is home to hundreds of bird species.  Here are just a few we saw on safari.

The Majestic Fish Eagle

                               Crested Cranes the national bird seen on the Ugandan flag.

Water Skidders
Watching them fly in formation was amazing.

Whenever you see a large animal there are almost always birds along side. Christina has been learning about symbiosis and she saw lots of examples on safari.  When the warthogs run through the grass they stir up insects which these birds gobble up.  Other bird species feed of the parasites found on larger animals.
