WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY - Vwasa Lodge Malawi (Part 2)

Although this post has wild birds in it, it also features Elephant, Hippopotamus and Impala and the VIDEO at the end of this post will give you a better idea of what is going on at Vwasa Lodge in Malawi.


White faced Whistling Ducks with the Hippos, top far right is Hadeda Ibis.


Now I know these birds are very far away but from left to right, they are

African Spoonbill, Yellow – billed Stork, Hadeda Ibis and another Spoonbill.

White faced Whistling Ducks, 2 Black – headed Heron and I am not 100% sure of the bird to the right.

Apart from the White - faced Whistling Duck, in front of the Elephants there is a Hadeda Ibis and Juvenile Black-headed Heron.  
Over to the far left there a Blacksmith Lapwing.

  8. Well, Margaret, you presented us with quite a smorgasbord of wildlife to enjoy this morning! Absolutely stunning! We truly enjoyed the variety and a chance to observe behavior at the watering hole.

    The video was fascinating! The elephants can be so protective, loving and threatening - all at the same time!

    Enjoy the rest of your visit!

  9. I thoroughly enjoyed viewing the elephants both in images and the video. That one baby elephant is so cute and how it walked to the underside of the mother elephant. Love the Rhinos and the Whistlers as well. Thanks for sharing Margaret!
