Found the Shoebill

To find the Shoebill we arranged for a local, specialised guide to help us find our way through Mabamba Swamps, just outside Entebbe. Shoebills, although big are not easy birds to find. An excellent blending grey camouflage and the fact that they stand undisturbed an motionless for long periods of time, make them hard to find. Of course, well trained eyes will be able to sport them and our guide managed to find one standing, hunting for fish, after 45 minutes of searching. The Shoebill below was concentrating on a spot in the swamp, targeting long lung- or mudfish. We managed to maneuver our mokoro into fair distance and our guest was able to create a few very nice images.

Excitement

On the first day of the Uganda Tour November/2014 with 2 guests from Switzerland we walked through the Botanical Gardens of Entebbe. As always, the park was packed with birds. Excitement rose when we encountered a White Crested Turaco in the thickets near the lake (Victoria) shoreline. Not often seen and well captured by the guest !
