Anyone that knows me really well, knows that I love birds! I guess you could say that I am a fledgling ornithologist. So when I visited Kenya recently it was a veritable treasure trove of birds! I wasn't able to get a picture of all of the beautiful birds that I saw, some flew away before I could capture them with a picture. The reference book which I purchased, " Birds of East Africa" lists 1293 species of birds for the region- approximately 15 percent of the world's bird species! Wow, that is a lot of birds! Needless to say, I was in "bird" heaven!
