WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY - Pied Crow from Malawi

The day I arrived in Blantyre, Malawi, this Pied Crow was the first bird I saw at my daughter's house where I am staying.  We are now travelling around Malawi and have arrived at Lake Malawi and have Monkeys in the garden!




These shots are of the back of the house where 
the veranda is and you can see 4 Pied Crows.



 This is the front of the family house.


Nelson, Judith and their daughter Fanny.  Nelson is the Gardener and he opens and closed the main gate.  They live in their own house in the grounds.

 Martha and her son Jehosaphat who comes twice a week to clean.

Thank you for visiting.   

I am linking this post with WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY 

Many thanks for all your comments especially when I do not have much internet time to comment on your posts.

  1. Very interesting. So is the Pied just like a regular crow in every respect except color?

  4. Your daughter's home is very welcoming. The grounds look great so Nelson is an excellent gardener plus he kills those pesky poison snakes! Lovely crows.

  13. A lovely photo of the gardener and his family. The crows are interesting. Also that is a lovely house. I was interested in those bars. Is that in case there are wild animals?

  18. Not only have I never seen a Pied Crow, until now, I'd never even heard of them.
    Great photos! It must be a great adventure to visit there.

  19. Awesome! From the thumbnail, I thought these were Hooded Crows. Pleasantly surprised. I've never heard of Pied Crows! Great shots. I love Corvids. Such smart birds!
