South Africa Finale – Arboreal Birds

Wow!  South Africa was 4 months ago and I finally completed cataloging all my photos.  I photographed 166 different bird species (although I have to admit, there were many shots that were “just for the birds.”)  But, here’s a few of cream of the crop of the arboreal species and the final installment of my African adventure.
