GW , the Martial eagle is my favorite bird,as it is very rare here in SA and the rest of Africa.While out on my trips I always keep a look out for them.

A&M, go to Kenya. I nearly always see them there. Last March, Ol pejeta, there were a pair we found regularly along the Ewaso nyiro river not far from the Bridge.

I would have love, love, loved to have seen flamingos in Tanzania. They were at Lake Manyara but merely a pink haze on the horizon. Hopefully another time!!

I have a long list of dream birds which I would love to see on safari. I would love to see a lammergeier and of course a shoebill stork. I'm going to post a list of all my dream birds on Safaritalk because there are so many of them.
